Makani Kai Air's N865MA Crashes At LUP

Makani Kai Air's C208B Grand Caravan N865MA (msn 208B0996) was involved in a hard landing at LUP this morning. Thankfully, none of the nine passengers nor pilot were injured. N865MA suffered damage to both wings, collapsed nose gear, and propellor, and appears to be not flyable. Reports also say that there was a Cessna 172, N243SP (msn 172S8212), owned by Sky Dolphin [Honolulu, HI], that allegedly cleared the runway, but did not, which could classify this as a runway incursion. Later reports say that the C172 was in the turn-around, and the C208 pilot over-reacted, and their actions caused the accident.
