Makaha DUI crash suspect released
A man arrested on suspicion of drunken driving in a crash that left a Honolulu police officer in critical condition has been released.
Police say the suspect arrested for first-degree negligent injury, driving under the influence and driving without a license was released Sunday pending further investigation.
Police say the officer remains hospitalized in critical condition Monday. He's a 13-year veteran of the force assigned to Kapolei.
Police say the suspect rear-ended the officer on Friday night in Makaha and then hit a truck carrying nine people.
The collision sent the officer's SUV through a brick wall of a home along Farrington Highway.
