An unidentified woman in her 50s drove her vehicle off a ledge and landed onto the roof of a single-family home on Mahalo Street this morning, according to the Honolulu Fire Department.

HFD sent one unit staffed with four personnel who arrived at the 2100 block of Mahalo Street at 10:33 a.m. HFD upgraded the incident from a vehicle accident to auto extrication and sent two more units staffed with seven personnel to the scene.

The woman trapped in her vehicle was safely extricated and later treated by Honolulu Emergency Medical Services. Paramedics said the patient was awake and talking, EMS said. According to the report, she was listed as being in “serious” condition.

HFD personnel braced and shored up a portion of the structure to provide additional building support.

No other details were immediately available.
