Driver injured in plunge off Maui cliff

HONOLULU (AP) - Maui Fire Department officials say a 73-year-old woman was injured when her car plunged down a cliff.

The Honolulu Star-Advertiser reports the woman lost control of her car Wednesday and it descended down a 20- to 30-foot cliff at Makamakaole Gulch off the Kahekili Highway in northern Maui.

The crash occurred at 3:36 p.m.

Fire officials say the driver apparently did not negotiate a curve.

The car came to a stop on its wheels in the driveway of a home.

The woman's name and condition at a Maui hospital were not released.
