Man hospitalized and charged with drink driving after Hofoa crash

A car driver from Kanokupolu was taken to hospital for medical assistance after a car he was driving in crashed at Hofoa last week.

Police said the man was later charged with reckless and drink driving.

His medical condition was not clear at the time of this report.

At the same time Police said the death of a 53-year-old man who died in Kolofoʻou last week was not suspicious.

On a separate note, Police said an autopsy has found and concluded the cause of death of the Telekava victim Kasimea ʻOneʻone and it will be released to public sometime this week.

Three teens had been arrested, charged and are currently in Police custody in relation to his death.
