I love the wording. No one's fault. The darn van just "veered off Kamehameha Highway." Thank goodness there were no passengers when the vehicle decided to "veer off Kamehameha Hwy." Obviously the hapless driver was a victim of this bad van's decision making.

"I drank too many beers and I fell asleep" sounds plausible because it incriminates oneself. Only explanations that incriminates oneself are accepted, because the man above seen what happened. If this driver is given a second chance next time a person could be run over. If I was running that company I would fire this driver. No sense take that chance and bring down the entire company later.

I surmise this airport shuttle driver was looking at his smartphone and veered.

With so little information in this article, how can we tell? Maybe it was mechanical failure. Maybe it was an inattentive driver. Maybe the driver had a medical problem.

The reporter's are just listening to what the cops are telling them. The cops know he fell asleep but did not release to press.

You probably came closest to the truth. This reporter got the scanty details of the police blotter. Easiest way to earn a living, just copy info off the blotter and post it. The rest is easy, wait for the pay-off.

Mysteriously veered off the road in Hauula. More likely TEXTING and not paying attention to the road.

That is how that company communicates with it is drivers. Using tablets and text messaging. I see it all the time at the airport. Speddie is what the driver was doing. The sheriffs have given those drivers a lot of speeding tickets at the airport.
