A woman was killed in Kaneohe while crossing Kamehameha Highway in a marked crosswalk late last night. Police are now looking for a white SUV or pick up truck. The highway was closed between Keaahala Road and Kahuhipa Street for 4 hours. It reopened around 1:30 this morning. Ramsay will have details live on Sunrise.
BEN CAYETANO UPDATE
Ben Cayetano is back home this morning recovering from a bleeding ulcer. Cayetano's wife Vicky says he's feeling better and is preparing for Saturday's primary election. The Mayoral candidate was scheduled to appear on Sunrise this morning, but given the circumstances, the Cayetano campaign has declined to pass on this morning's interview.
The Rainbow Wahine open practice this morning. Dave Shoji's team is picked to finish first in their new conference. We'll catch up with the coach and players at 6:30 on Sunrise.

SUNRISE SUMMER GAMES BASKETBALL
It's too late for the Sunrise crew to get into the real Olympics so we staged our own Sunrise Summer Games.

By the way, if you've missed our other attempts at Olympic greatness, take a look at how we fared when we tried out Olympic diving, track and field, gymnastics, and table tennis.
