Man charged with attempted murder in highway crash

By Star-Advertiser staff

LAST UPDATED: 12:26 a.m. HST, Aug 07, 2012

A 24-year-old Hauula man was charged with first-degree attempted-murder Monday following an East Oahu traffic accident Saturday in which three people were injured.

Justin N. Bush also was charged with three counts of second-degree attempted murder; one count of first-degree assault; two counts of first-degree attempted assault; drunken driving; and other charges, police said. The suspect was still being held Monday at the Ala­pai police station cellblock. Bail was set at $200,000.

The collision occurred about 10:15 p.m. on Kalanianaole Highway near Kaai Street, closed westbound lanes on the highway for nearly five hours.

He was arrested several blocks away at Waieli Street and Kalanianaole Highway.

Police are investigating reports that two parties involved in the crash had been arguing at another location before the accident.

Paramedics transported a 21-year-old man to a hospital in critical condition. A woman and another man, both reportedly in their 20s, were also taken to the hospital but their conditions were not disclosed.

Speed and alcohol may have been factors in the crash, according to police.

Exactly, joseph007. Our justice system consists of plea bargains by our prosecutors, short inconsequential sentences by our judges, and even shorter sentences by our parole board. Why are we so afraid to bring it down hard on criminals? Our entire judicial system MUST be held accountable to the public. MUST!!!

You can take away the license but you cannot stop them from driving. You can only enforce second punishment if he is caught. Hopefully they don't kill any innocent people.

You misunderstand me silvangold. I am mocking the law just as you are. The insane court system cannot and do not enforce the laws. The punishment has to match the crime. Insanity continues.
