A policewoman, 37, and a man were seriously injured in an early morning crash on Kapiolani Boulevard.

The driver of a black Mercedes, a 69-year-old male, crashed into a building at 1326 Kapiolani Boulevard at 12:20 a.m. near Sheridan Street after a collision with a blue-and-white police car, according to an Emergency Medical Services report.

The smashed front end of the police vehicle could be seen facing the opposite direction of traffic in the Koko Head-bound lanes of Kapiolani Boulevard.

Police shut down the Koko Head-bound lanes of Kapiolani Boulevard between Piikoi and Kona Iki streets while they investigated the crash.

Paramedics took both victims to the hospital in serious condition.

What kind of "professional" writing is this? "He and driver of the police vehicle" ? No mention of how the police vehicle was involved, just that the "driver of a black Mercedez (sic) crashed into a building...." Does that mean the driver crashed or the car crashed? Did the "Mercedez" (sic) hit the police car before crashing? No wonder so many articles have the byline "Star-Advertiser staff." I wouldn't put my name on this lazy writing, either. It's funny that the ad above the story is for Mercedes-Benz of Honolulu, though.

The Honolulu Star-Advertiser has unpaid interns without a college degree writing most breaking news stories. Or am I being too kind?

Was the driver drunk? Who is the man that got injured with the police? Such basic facts left out. SA better pay their worker better to retain talent. Sounds like high school kids writing for the SA.
