KAHALUU, Oahu (KHNL) - As friends and family of Corey Voss grieve over their loss, they are also comforted by learning Voss' final moments were not spent alone.
It's a day one neighbor who lives near the crash site will never forget. Charley Kaeo, a Kahaluu resident, met a stranger who had just seconds to live.
"I heard this loud explosion. I was coming out of my house. I looked over and I saw the SUV tumbling right on the side of the rocks" said Kaeo.
He saw a demolished SUV. Inside was Corey Voss, and he was losing blood fast.
"He was trying to breathe, so I kind of looked at the situation, the only thing i thought of was: I think we have to say a prayer, because it did not look good."
And there, along Kamehameha Highway, Kaeo prayed with Voss as he began to lose consciousness.
Kaeo was also there, when Steve Oshiro, the tour bus driver, stepped off his bus. Kaeo claims the bus driver was on the phone when he stepped out of the wreckage in a daze.
"I can't say who he was talking to, but he did say 'What happened?' And I said, 'Take a good look at what you did!"
Many gathered to say goodbye to Corey Voss, but along with the sadness, there is also frustration over the police investigation into the bus driver's condition that night.
A blood sample would have shown whether Oshiro had alcohol or drugs in his body at the time of the crash. Oshiro refused to give one.
