Car Plunges Off 200-Foot Sea Cliff On Hawaii's Hana Highway

The fall killed one woman and critically injured another.

A car plunged off a 200-foot cliff on the Hawaiian island of Maui Sunday afternoon, killing one woman and critically injuring another.

The incident occurred at approximately 4:41 p.m. near mile marker 48 of the Hana Highway on the island's east shore, according to Maui Now. The Ford Explorer initially crashed into a rock wall on the coastal side of the highway, then plunged off the cliff, falling onto a ledge of lava rock.

Emergency responders pulled the victims from the vehicle and pronounced one of the women dead upon arrival, reports KHON2. The other woman was airlifted to Maui Memorial Medical Center in critical condition.

Maui's Hana Highway is well known for its sweeping views of the northeast coast of the island. It is one of the most popular tourist activities on Maui.
