Wind Farm Transport Crash, Emilia Effects, Olympic Arrivals

NORTH SHORE CRASH

We're getting reports this morning about an accident related to the windmill convoys to the North Shore. A 19 year old was arrested for DUI after slamming into a pick up on the side of Kamehameha Highway and Haleiwa Road. According to police, the truck was on the side of the road to make room for the convoy. The car driven by the teen slammed into the truck, which then crashed into a police vehicle. Five minors inside the truck were taken to the hospital, but there's no word on their conditions yet. Ramsay is on scene gathering information and will have the details on Sunrise.

SEVERE WEATHER IMPACT ON HAWAII

What's left of Emilia could bring wetter and windier conditions to the State today. Dan's tracking that, plus the latest on Hurricane Fabio. Currently, Fabio is about 700 miles west-southwest of the southern tip of Baja California. To follow its path, you can check out our exclusive hurricane tracker at HawaiiNewsNow.com

F-22 PROBLEM FOLLOW UP

Air Force officials say an in-flight emergency involving an F-22 Raptor in Hawaii is not related to the investigation of a mysterious oxygen-loss problem. They conclude the Hawaii Air National Guard incident was caused by regular mechanical issues. An investigation continues into the cause of dizziness reported by pilots and the safety of the Raptor fleet.

OLYMPIC COUNTDOWN

Here's a sure sign the Summer Olympics are just around the corner. Athletes from around the world started arriving in London today. On a typical day, Heathrow Airport sees 190 thousand arrivals. Today, 237 thousand will.

USA UNIFORM CONTROVERSY

China's media blast U.S. Lawmakers for complaining the Olympic uniforms for Team USA were made in China. They suggest U.S. Lawmakers should be banned from "wearing anything or using any product" that was made abroad. Designer Ralph Lauren says the uniforms will be made in the United States for the next Winter Olympic games.

Hope you can start your work week with Sunrise.

Aloha,
