WAILUKU (HawaiiNewsNow) - A car crash on Maui this week quickly escalated after police discovered two PVC pipes in the vehicle that resembled explosive devices.
Following an hours-long investigation, and the evacuation of nearby homes, the bomb squad determined the devices did not contain any powder residue and gave the all-clear.
Investigators say a 17-year-old hit a rock wall on Liholiho Street around 7:30 p.m. Tuesday.
He and three passengers were taken to the hospital for treatment.
As officers examined the wreck, they found the PVC pipes and called the bomb squad.
