Three injured as truck crashes into wall
The truck, which was loaded with dirt and gravel, was coming down Pu'uikena, the steep road that leads from Hawai'i Loa Ridge, shortly before 4:30 p.m. The truck crossed the highway and rammed into the coral wall that surrounds the home of Mike Fisch, publisher and president of The Advertiser.
Fisch said he had just arrived home when he heard the crash. He said the truck pushed a portion of the wall against his house, causing some structural damage.
Fisch said he and several other people helped the driver and two young boys out of the truck. The three were taken to The Queen's Medical Center, where they were in guarded condition last night.
