Makaha Crash, Fireworks Mishap, Sunrise Olympics


A 21 year old driver is in critical condition this morning after flipping her car near Makua Beach park in Makaha. Police say the car was speeding and lost control on Farrington Highway. Ramsay has details on the overnight crash on Sunrise.


You're moving along when suddenly you see brake lights, and you slow down for no apparent reason. It's part of the daily drive on the H-1 freeway between the Pali and Punahou. Right now, crews are working to re-stripe this notorious bottleneck from 3 to 4 lanes. The work is scheduled overnight from 9 pm to 4 am Sundays through Thursdays and 10 pm to 6 am Fridays and Saturdays. If all goes well, we should be cruising through this corridor in about 3 weeks.


A man is in serious condition after lighting fireworks while drunk at Ewa Beach Community park. We're told he was standing over the fireworks when it happened. No word what type it was. Of course, a fireworks ban went into effect in July.


Sabrina Josue is recovering after an historic kidney transplant. The Ewa Beach grandmother is the first kidney recipient at the Queen's Medical Center. She received the call yesterday after 9 years on the transplant list. You can see her story here.


10 days and counting until the Summer Olympics opening ceremony in London and Sunrise is getting into the Games. We're holding our Sunrise Olympics and want suggestions for which events our team should tackle. Yesterday, we tried out gymnastics and it wasn't a pretty sight. What should we do next? We're open to anything. Just let me know on Facebook. KHNL is your Olympic headquarters. We'll be keeping in close touch with our Hawaii athletes at the games and other American hopefuls. This morning, we'll talk with swimmer Rebecca Phoney.

See you on Sunrise!
