Third vehicle sought in fatal crash in Laie

Police are looking for a third vehicle involved in a crash Thursday in Laie that resulted in the death of an 82-year-old Laie man who was a passenger in a 2010 Toyota RAV4.

Police said the RAV4 driver, a 77-year-old woman, attempted to turn left into a driveway at or near 55-164 Kame­ha­meha Highway, crossed the centerline and collided head-on with a 2010 Nissan Armada, which stayed at the scene.

But police investigation revealed damage to the rear of the RAV4, and fresh broken glass, indicating a third vehicle was involved, police said Monday.

The third vehicle is described as large, possibly a light-colored sport utility vehicle, truck or van. The vehicle fled and may have damage to the left front or left side, police said.

The crash occurred at 3:27 p.m. Thursday on Kame­ha­meha Highway south of Pekelo Place.

The RAV4 driver and her front-seat passenger, along with the Nissan driver, a 54-year-old man, were taken in serious condition to the Queen’s Medical Center.

The 82-year-old man, Arthur Enos, died of multiple blunt force injuries due to the accident, the city Medical Examiner’s Office said.

Anyone with information is asked to call CrimeStoppers at 955-8300.

Woman trying to light cigarette is burned

A woman in her 70s was burned Monday afternoon after apparently trying to light a cigarette while breathing through a device that concentrates oxygen from room air, a fire official said.

Paramedics treated the woman for burns to her face after the 2:30 p.m. incident at her condominium at 1550 Wilder Ave. The woman was transported in serious condition to a hospital, EMS said.

Fire Capt. Terry Seelig said the oxygen caused the cigarette to flare up briefly, igniting the woman’s hair and clothes and burning her face.

The fire caused an estimated $6,000 in damage to her bed, machine and condo.
