Mo-ped rider critically hurt in crash

A 31-year-old Honolulu man was critically injured early yesterday morning after he crashed his mo-ped into a parked car on Keeaumoku Street, police said.

At about 1:30 a.m., the man was riding his mo-ped north on Keeaumoku when he lost control just south of Kaihee Street and hit an unoccupied 2010 Toyota Rav4 SUV.

He was taken to a hospital with critical head and other injuries, police said.

Alcohol, drugs and speed may be factors in the crash, and the mo-ped rider was not wearing a helmet, according to police.

Mystery package prompts evacuation

Officials closed part of Queen Street and evacuated a state office building yesterday when a suspicious package was delivered there.

Queen Street from Punchbowl to Mililani streets was closed for about 90 minutes.

The Fire Department's hazardous materials team investigated the package, which had concrete inside, a spokesman said.

At about 10:30 a.m., there was a report of a suspicious envelope delivered to 425 Queen St., the Hale Auhau building that houses the state Attorney General's Office.

The Honolulu Police Department did not activate its bomb squad.

Injured man rescued after writing SOS

The man had been hiking when a rock fell from the waterfall and hit his head, a Kauai County news release said.

A tour helicopter notified authorities after seeing the man's plea for help carved in the sand.

A fire helicopter picked him up and took him to Princeville Airport about 5:30 p.m. Sunday. Paramedics took him to Wilcox Memorial Hospital.
