Woman in serious condition after car drives off ledge, lands on home’s roof in Nuuanu
HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - A woman is in serious condition after a car drove off a ledge and landed on a home’s roof in Nuuanu, Sunday, said Honolulu EMS.
Honolulu Fire Department said the incident occurred around 10:30 a.m. on Mahalo Street.
EMS officials say they responded to a vehicle that drove off a ledge and went into a home.
Neighbor Mandy Tardis said she recognized the driver and her vehicle, “she was pulling into the driveway; she was pulling in fast. She clipped the car in front of her.”
Tardis goes on to say, “I believe what happened was because it shocked her that she clipped the car; instead of pressing on the brake, she pressed on the gas, which then launched her over this cliff right here and flipped the car over and then she landed down below onto a shed onto this home where I witnessed the whole thing.”
HFD said upon arrival they discovered a car “resting on the roof of a single family home.”
HFD said they upgraded the incident to an auto-extrication due to the car’s location and a single occupant still trapped in their vehicle.
HFD said the patient was safely extricated and paramedics took over treating the patient who was awake and talking and didn’t appear to suffer any major injuries.
Officials say all HFD personnel were accounted for with no reported injuries.
This is a developing story.
