Kauai woman survives 175-foot plunge in car

A 42-year-old woman from Poipu, Kauai, was rescued by firefighters Friday after her car plunged 175 feet off Waimea Canyon Road and landed in a tree.

She was reported in guarded condition last night at the Queen's Medical Center.

Firefighters estimated the car had been in the tree about nine hours before it was seen and reported, apparently by tourists.

"No one saw her go over the side," said a spokesman at the Waimea Fire Station. The accident occurred at a place where people normally don't stop because it isn't a lookout point, he said.

Two firefighters from the Waimea station rappelled to the crash site about 5:12 p.m. Friday, secured the car and stabilized the patient, he said.

A helicopter from the Lihue station air-lifted the woman to the Kauai Veterans Memorial Hospital and she was taken from there to Queen's.

Maui police seek stolen surfboards

Police are looking for a total of 14 vintage surfboards taken from the Hi-Tech surf sports storage facility in Kahului. They were discovered missing on Jan. 4, after police arrested two people who had taken a surfboard.

Police seek 2 suspects in Pearlridge shooting

Police are searching for two men in their 20s or 30s who allegedly attacked each other with a baseball bat and fired shots in the Uptown parking lot of the Pearlridge Shopping Center at 3:40 p.m. Friday.

One man allegedly approached the second man's car and smashed in a window with a baseball bat. The second man fired at the first man, who fled in another vehicle, police said.

A third man was arrested in a stolen vehicle at the scene, but his connection to the assaults, which police are classifying as attempted second-degree murder, wasn't clear, a police spokesman said yesterday.
