  • STAR-ADVERTISER / 2001

    The Hana Highway twists its way to Hana, Maui.

A woman died and another was critically injured this afternoon after the vehicle they were riding in ran off Hana Highway and plunged 200 feet off a cliff.

The incident occurred around 4:42 p.m. in an area fronting St. Peter Catholic Mission, about four miles from Hana, the Maui Fire Department said by email.

The vehicle landed on a lava rock outcropping surrounded by water.

Firefighters pried the women from the vehicle and airlifted them to a designated landing site where paramedics were waiting.

One woman was pronounced dead at the scene. The other woman was transported in critical condition to Maui Memorial Medical Center.
