Court Rules in Favor of County of Maui in Fatal Car Accident

HONOLULU (KHNL) - A U.S. District Court judge ruled in favor of the County of Maui and two County employees in a fatal car accident case.

The plaintiff's husband was killed when his car was struck by a car driven by a woman who had been drinking aboard a snorkel tour vessel.

The plaintiff sought millions of dollars in damages against the driver, vessel owners and the County, alleging the County failed to enforce its liquor regulations properly.

The court says the County was not liable to the plaintiff for the alleged failure to enforce its liquor rules.
