Overnight, three separate incidents kept Emergency medical crews busy. The first was a stabbing at Mayor Wright Housing around 1:30 this morning. Police tell us a man in his 20's got into an argument with another man and was stabbed 4 to 5 times. An arrest has been made
Right around that same time, a bicyclist crashed on Olokele Avenue near the Ala Wai Golf Course. He's reported in serious, but stable condition. Police say he was drunk.
Just 20 minutes after the stabbing and bicycle crash, a fight outside a Kailua bar sent another man to the hospital. Reports from the scene say the victim was assaulted and knocked out. At last check, he was in serious condition.
Emergency rooms are so full, they reached maximum capacity and forced ambulances to reroute with their patients onboard overnight. There's been a crunch at Oahu's remaining 9 hospitals since the closure of Hawaii Medical Center in Liliha and Ewa 3 months ago.
HALEIWA FARMERS MARKET
Howard has some exclusive details about the technicality that's forcing the Haleiwa Farmers Market to look for a new site. Recently, the State Department of Transportation informed the Market it could no longer operate where it has for years because technically it's a "road."
President Obama has signed a disaster declaration for the State because of last month's severe weather. That paves the way for federal aid to make repairs to roads and public buildings. Kauai alone saw two million dollars in damage.
