Alins Sumang made his first appearance in Honolulu's District Court Thursday morning. Sumang is charged with three counts of manslaughter. His preliminary hearing will be on Monday at 1:30 pm. at District Court. If the judge determines there is enough evidence to hold him over for trial, his arraignment and plea will later be held at Circuit Court.

If convicted, Sumang could face up to 60 years in prison. 

6 p.m.

27-year-old Alins Sumang is charged with three counts of manslaughter and his bail is set at $1 million. Honolulu Police believe Sumang was speeding and under the influence of alcohol at the time of the crash.


The third victim in Monday's fatal crash is 47-year-old Leino Ikeda.

The Japanese Consulate in Honolulu say she's originally from Tokyo, Japan, and was alone on vacation.

Ikeda's mother is working on funeral arrangements right now.

The consulate is working to get her a passport to Hawaii so that she can bring her daughter's body back home.

8:00 P.M.

According to Honolulu Police, officers were first called to Makaloa and Amana streets after a report of a truck hitting parked cars.

"The officer located a truck matching the witness description and began following it," Chief Susan Ballard said in a press conference Tuesday.

According to witnesses the suspect sped down Kona Street followed by a police officer with lights on but no siren sounding. 

"There are speed bumps that were totally ignored, if I had put a number on it, it would be eighty because they literally disappeared by the time I backed up and looked the other way," a witness said. 

Ballard could not say how fast the suspect or officer was traveling, and says HPD will be conducting an administrative review to see if HPD pursuit policies were followed.

"We know he had his pilot light on but as far as his flashing light, that is still under investigation. The siren was on at one point chirping on and off that is all part of the investigation but generally when you lose sight of a suspect vehicle you turn off your lights and siren," Chief Ballard said. 

Ballard said the officers broke off pursuit when the suspect got to Ala Moana Boulevard.

"The officer eventually observed the truck turn onto Ala Moana Boulevard at a high rate of speed and weave in an out of traffic. The officer was unable to keep up with the truck in moving traffic," Chief Ballard said.

The F-150 truck driven by the suspect is registered to an O'ahu company, HPD says that it had not been reported stolen.

The man behind the wheel has had police run-ins before. 

"Three convictions including one felony conviction for terroristic threatening, under arrest and will be charged with three counts of manslaughter," Chief Ballard said.

While three people were killed, two other pedestrians and the driver of the other F-150 truck were critically injured, with one additional pedestrian being treated at the hospital and released. 

At the scene of the deadly accident, lei were draped over traffic cones on the raised island where pedestrians had been standing when the truck barreled through, scattering debris and people across the intersection.

"I talked to the officers and firefighters and everybody was shaken up, this was probably one of the worst cases any of us have seen," Chief Ballard said. 

3:26 P.M.

Among the three deceased was 26-year-old Casimir Pokorny.

Pokorny was visiting Hawaii with his girlfriend and friends on vacation. He was supposed to leave Tuesday.

KITV4 spoke with Gail Garin -- Pokorny's mom -- who said that the last conversation with her son was about Hawaii, how beautiful it was, and how he was having a good time. He was an only child.

Garin also said that he never got off the phone without saying 'I love you.'

Friends of Pokorny are devastated.

Sources say Pokorny's girlfriend is in the hospital and is expected to make it.

2:26 P.M.

Two people involved in the crash that died were named.

26-year-old Casimir Pokorny from Oreland, Pennsylvania, and 39-year-old William Lau of Honolulu, Hawaii died.

The manner and causes of both of the deceased are pending. 

1:55 P.M.

Police will be closing Ala Moana Blvd. westbound at Kamakee St. for the on-going investigation.

Tuesday 7:50 A.M.

Police say a suspected drunk driver in a pickup truck slammed into a crowded Honolulu intersection, killing two pedestrians and a bicyclist and injuring five people including himself.

Alcohol and speed may have played a role in the crash shortly before 6:30 p.m. Monday in the Kakaako neighborhood, according to authorities.

Lt. James Slayter tells the Star Advertiser that the truck had hit other cars several blocks away and then sped across three lanes of traffic in an attempt to turn onto Kamakee Street.
He says the truck drove over an island and knocked over a light pole where the pedestrians and bicyclist were waiting. He also plowed into another pickup truck.
The two truck drivers were hospitalized in serious condition. Two pedestrians were in critical condition, while one was in good condition.

10:50 P.M.

Honolulu Police said a truck was speeding and weaving through traffic in the west bound lanes of Ala Moana Boulevard around 6 PM, when the 27-year-old male driver made a sudden right turn onto Kamakee Street. He lost control of his vehicle, hitting a traffic light, another truck and six pedestrians.

Three of those pedestrians were killed. Two men and one woman.

Five others were hospitalized, including the truck driver.

HPD Lieutenant James Slayter said this crash happened after police were flagged for another motor vehicle crash in the Ala Moana area where the vehicle fled the scene. Lt. Slayter said there was no police pursuit. No arrests have been made, but Lt. Slayter said speed and alcohol may have been factors. 

"Even as a comparison to last year, last year was such a high year in deaths and injuries and pedestrian fatalities, its very disheartening," he said. "Obviously things like this are easily avoidable."

At least one of the victims may have been a tourist. One was believed to be riding a Biki bike. 

Westbound traffic on Ala Moana Boulevard as well as on Kamakee Street will be closed until crews can remove debris from the scene. 

Monday 8:35 p.m.

On-scene Emergency Medical Services assisted with death pronouncements of three patients.

Around 6:10 p.m. Honolulu Emergency Medical Services responded with multiple ambulances and emergency vehicles to Ala Moana Park Drive and Kamakee Street. EMS paramedics treated five patients with multiple serious injuries and transported them to multiple hospitals, all in serious condition.
