So California now has a prison named Haleiwa?
Is it similar to the one on Oahu named Halawa?
Send a picture for the Saturday feature showing Hawaiian names away from Hawaii.

To the Aldridge family so sorry for your lost, i live on the North-shore and when ever i am driving i am looking for any truck with front end damage, and i know many others are too. To the driver, you can't live on day by day knowing you did this, it will not go away, I pray you do the right thing, i know it must be hard, to carry this guilt. God bless you all...

For some reason the location for me is shown incorrectly every time. Might have to do with my ISP's server location. Don't know or care. Don't dismiss strange locations automatically Bro.

The guy is beeing protected by his extended family. This driver's family already know what happened, but are not saying anything hoping it goes away. People not saying anything, remember this is "Hawaii", people know everyone around and one of your neighbor will be compelled to say something if it make it thing about, if it happens to his family it would like for the driver to turn himself him. Come on, people out there know who this guy is. Cuz, tell on your Cuz, he killed a person. He need to face his fate.

Hit and Run Driver: What you gonna do when they come for you?
Parents of boy hit by driver: Dont you think it's dangerous to let your son ride home on his bike at 1:30am. Obviously it was.
Yes, the driver of the van is responsible for not stopping to provide aid but you folks also bear some responsibility for this accident. This accident could have been foreseen and prevented.
My condolences.

My condolences...I just found out that this was dependent child living at Helemano. I do feel for you all and my middle, whom happened to be also an dependent and a Hawaii National Guard member, had a similar accident last year. However, he was driving to work at Ala Moana at usual 4:30 a.m. Out of nowhere, a bike crossed the road from the beach and my son hit him. This man survived even though he was in his 70's. He can out of the hospital with only a broken arm, but the car received serious damages to the windshield. We are very blessed that this was not a fatality. My son continues to have bad feelings when he approaches any type of bikes and motorcyles. He is more conscience then ever.

At the same token, my oldest, whom rides his bike to and from work everyday early in the morning as well as night-time. He rides his bike due to his health condition as well as the cost of rising prices.

During these times of higher gas prices and alternative ways of transportation, we as motorists and bicylists, must learn to share the road and beware at all times without selfishness and inconsiderate people.

Now!Is the time to repect others, do not drink, and drive! Obey all traffic laws for other people too!!

Nice. Was that second part really necessary? Do you go up to rape victims and say "that guy should be punished but should you have really been wearing that dress?"

Why should the driver turn himself in at this point? To make someone else feel better? The truck is already destroyed or repainted, and the, "But he's a good boy" driver will have alibis from everyone in his circle. The only hope is that one of his drinking buddies gets mad at him and turns him in.

Wow, I love your Ainokea attitude. The driver should have stopped and rendered aid instead of running away and committing another felony in the process.

Don't worry, karma will get the driver back, especially for something this serious. Pay back is a B - I - T - C - H.

Something far worse than death will happen to the driver or his own family. When it happens, he'll be saying to himself, "I should have stopped and rendered aid instead of running away and committing another felony in the process."

May not happen for the next 10 minutes, 10 hours, 10 days, 10 weeks or 10 years, but it will come. Just he wait to see when it happens at the most unexpected or inopportune time.

Then, others will be there with their contagious Ainokea attitude.

So how could the accident be foresee and prevented? You should like the arrogant Dr. Phil who believes there are no such thing as accidents, which is just so arrogant as H - E - L - L. Wish we were all perfect like the two of you.

Why can't the boy ride his bike on the shoulder of the road at that time? If riders are out there at that time, does it give drivers an excuse to play bang-and-kill the bike rider during the early morning hours?

Come one, get real here.

The Ainokea thugs rule in the kingdom of scofflaws. Fat and stupid from swilling beer, they cruise the roads in huge machines, drunk and happy in an idiotic daze. If they crash they run, secure in the knowledge that their family of felons and goons will cover up their crimes, from false crack killer punches to full on collisions in a borrowed van. God forbid that someone try to commute by bicycle or try to load a disabled motorcycle, for the Ainokea killers may strike without warning, without remorse.

People should be lifting the family up in prayer. They lost a son and must be hurting horribly. I have two sons and could not picture a day without them. I pray that the driver will do the right thing and turn themselves in. It will not bring the son back, but it is the right thing to do. I pray that the family is able to heal. I am sure they have already kicked themselves for letting him ride a back that late. However it will not change what happened. The person to blame is the one that left the scene. Time was wasted that might possibly have saved the life. I pray that God gives the driver strength to step forwarded and the family peace. It will be hard for the family to move forward with out closure. If the driver is reading this: People would think more of you, if you stepped up and took responsibility. Just do the right thing!

"Police are providing a more detailed description of the red truck suspected in the hit-and-run death of a teenager near Wahiawa last week.
Evidence recovered at the scene in front of the Dole Plantation has identified the vehicle being either:
» A red 2006 Chevrolet Express Cutaway or;
» A red 2006 GMC Savana Cutaway.
David Wayne Aldridge II, 18, a recent Leilehua High School graduate, was hit about 1:30 a.m. on July on Kamehameha Highway fronting Dole Plantation as he rode his bike home to Helemano Military Reservation from his job at the Burger King on Schofield Barracks.
The teenager's father, Staff Sgt. David Aldridge Sr. urged the driver of the truck to do the right thing and surrender to authorities.
The truck was headed toward the North Shore and fled the scene after hitting Aldridge, police said.
Police said the vehicle has a red cab, chrome outside mirrors, a black flat bed and yellow lights above the cab. There is also damage to the right front of the vehicle, lamp assembly and right outside mirror." from The Honolulu Starbulletin
Now we got better leads let's catch this scumbag.

To his family I send prayers and wish that the driver would turn themself in. Its a little thing called responsibility that people are lacking and it doesn't matter what you did, you need to own up to your mistakes. If it had turned out that the kid was a convict and they wanted to give an award to the person, they would have been the first in line screaming "Its me! I did it!"

The driver needs to own up and have the morality to appoligize to the family and take their punishment. It would be nothing more then suitable and proper.
