Memorial fund established for teen killed Ewa crash

Posted: Updated:

The family of Kawehi Adkins-Kupuka'a, the fourteen year-old girl killed in a car crash in Ewa Beach just over week ago, says a memorial fund has been set up at local Bank of Hawaii branches in Kawehi's memory.

Anyone wishing to donate money to The Kawehi Adkins-Kupukaa Memorial Fund can do so at Bank of Hawaii branches, or by mailing them to:

The Kawehi Adkins-Kupukaa Memorial Fund
Bank of Hawaii
P.O. Box 2900
Honolulu HI 96846

Kawehi was a passenger in the GMC Envoy that crashed into two other cars before slamming into a utility pole on Kaimalie Street at around 1:30 p.m.

On Monday, the Honolulu Medical Examiner revealed that she did not have alcohol in her system at the time of the crash. Police believe the driver, 16-year-old Brandon Harris, had been drinking.

Kawehi's family says they wish to thank the members of the community who have comforted them during this difficult time for being so supportive.

Funeral services for Kawehi are currently scheduled for December 17, 2012 at Leeward Church in Waipahu.
