HONOLULU (KHNL) - There's an unexpected turn in the case against an Oahu man accused of raping a teen driver following a minor car crash.

On Wednesday, prosecutors suddenly dropped their kidnapping and sex assault charges against Ikaika Stone, 24.

A 16-year-old girl told police Stone raped her at a construction site in the back of Kaimuki High School, after her car collided with his truck nearby.

Prosecutors say Stone's trial in an unrelated assault case is still set for September.
