Woman, 73, injured after car runs off cliff on Maui

By Star-Advertiser staff

LAST UPDATED: 12:09 a.m. HST, Dec 06, 2013

A 73-year-old woman was taken to Maui Memorial Hospital Wednesday after she lost control of her car and went down a 30-foot cliff at Makamakaole Gulch in northern Maui.

Maui fire officials said the incident occurred at 3:36 p.m. Thursday on Kahekili Highway.

The victim apparently failed to make a turn in the road on the Kahakuloa side of Makamakaole Gulch and went down a 20- to 30-foot cliff. Her car landed on its wheels on a resident's driveway. She was transported to the hospital although her condition following the accident was not reported by Maui fire officials.

Reminds me of the time a car went off Roundtop Drive on the Manoa side going downhill just before the big Ewa bend. IIRC, that one landed on top of somebody's roof.

Too many old people running off cliffs, driving thru restaurants.....Need to scrutinize the ability to drive prior to renewing those licenses.
