A 56-year-old woman was killed Monday morning when the car she was driving veered off a dead-end road in Nuuanu, went down an embankment and ended up in Nuuanu Stream.

The Honolulu Medical Examiner's Office identified her as Betty V. Caba­sag; she lived less than a mile from the crash site.

An autopsy will be performed today.

Firefighters used hydraulic tools to free Caba­sag, who was trapped in her car in the stream at the end of 55 S. Judd St. just after 5 a.m.

It appeared Cabasag's car rammed a steel barrier at the end of the road and went into a ravine.

Paramedics said she died at the scene at 5:14 a.m.
