Body found after fiery crash

By Star-Advertiser staff

LAST UPDATED: 06:01 a.m. HST, Jun 16, 2013

A pick-up truck, weaving on Farrington Highway and speeding, went off the road, crashed into a concrete piling and burst into flames just after midnight Saturday north of Makua Cave near Pray for Sex Beach, police said.

One person died and four teenage girls were in serious condition after the crash.

Witnesses told police that the truck was moving “very erratically” towards Kaena Point State Park before the crash. Several people fled from the vehicle after the crash, including the driver.

But paramedics took the girls, ages 13,14,15 and 16, to the hospital in serious condition.

After firefighters put out the flames, the body of a male victim was discovered in the front seat of the burned truck, a Fire Department spokesman said.

Traffic investigators are still trying to determine the age and identity of the victim.

The victim is the 33rd traffic fatality on Oahu this year, compared to 27 at the same time last year.

Oh my. So young. Prayers for the families over there. The only facts we know are: young driver, young passengers. We can only surmise other possible factors are driver inexperience, driver distraction, alcohol or drugs, speeding, fatigue. What I really don't like are from the KITV News report that up to a dozen people were in that truck.

Every time these reporters get their geography wrong I complain and yet they never learn. I don't think anyone from the newspaper reads what we writer here. Pray for Sex beach is really Makua beach and it's NOT IN MAKAHA.

I know it's off topic but, is it Pray for Sex or Pray for Sets Beach?. I've heard both so i'm not sure myself.

Hardly a day goes by that I don't see someone driving dangerously or erratically, not just on freeways but also in residential areas. These people should not even be licensed. Anyone found driving without a license should be subject to immediate arrest and a huge fine. For those scofflaws who thumb their noses at the public and the police, the consequences should be even more severe including mandatory jail time.

KITV report says 12 people were in the pickup truck. It looks like a mid-sized pickup minicab, so 4 max inside unless overloaded, and 8 n the bed. Say 150 Lbs. per, and you have 1,800 Lbs--well above the carrying capacity of a truck in this class. If there were bigger folks, then even more overloaded the truck would have been. The road bends. A vehcile overloaded gets squirrelly perhaps first understeering, then overcorrects and oversteers so the driver then leaves the roadway over that concrete curbing and onto the rocks. Kids are ejected from the bed. Truck had run over rocks and either the gas tank or a fuel line is breached, comes into contact with a hot exhaust system, and bursts into flames.

You just don't get it. That's how racists are.
My comment was in response to your reference to Yokohama.

The more you flap your gums, the more you illustrate what a num num you are.
Why don't you be more like allie and stick to rebuttals like "huh?".
That way, you wouldn't be showing your ignorance as much.

I agree. I'm surprised pick-up trucks are still exempt from the law! Riding in the back of pickup trucks are more dangerous than no seatbelts in the back seat of a regular car. Young people never learn but when they do it's an eye opener!!! They probably just graduated from high school and went too far enjoying themselves.

This is a argument for raising the driving age. Adolescents are much to young and should be required to reach the age of reason before being permitted to have this privilege. It would save countless lives and heartaches all around.
