Three injured, one critically, in 2-car Kalanianaole crash

Three people were injured, one critically, early today in a two-car collision on Kalanianaole Highway at Halemaumau Street in Niu Valley.

Police traffic investigators said speed may have been a contributing factor in the 1:03 a.m. collision in which a black Acura traveling Ewa on Kalanianaole Highway broadsided a Saturn sedan turning left onto Halemaumau.

A man seated in the front seat of the Acura suffered critical injuries and is hospitalized at Queen's. The 19-year-old driver of the Acura and a girl, 15, who was seated in back are listed in guarded condition at Queen's.

A woman who was the lone occupant in the Saturn was treated at Straub Hospital and released.

Boy charged as adult in student's murder

A 17-year-old boy has been charged as an adult with second-degree murder for the May 20 shooting of Farrington High School student Robert Rodemio at an Ewa Village home.

Joel Keoni Brunson of 91-1040 Puamaeole St. was arrested Friday shortly before noon after Family Court waived jurisdiction, clearing the way for him to be charged as an adult.

Brunson is charged with second-degree murder, two firearm offenses and first-degree terroristic threatening. His bail totals $125,000.

Brunson is accused of shooting Robert Rodemio, 18, during a confrontation that occurred between groups at a girl's birthday party.
