Another innocent life taken by an underaged drunk that drove a vehicle. If you're underaged and want to break the law by drinking, stay home and get drunk. Don't drive because the odds are against you. Hard way to learn, but it was YOUR choice to drink and drive. Now, you have to pay the price. My ALOHA to the ohana and a speedy recovery to the other woman.

Can't people drive in Hawaii? Every day we read about head-on collisions, driving into trees, driving off the road, running over pedestrians, etc. Slow down drivers, and pay attention attention for crying out loud!!
