Wailuku Woman Killed in Truck Crash

KAHULUI (KHNL) -- Maui police are investigating whether alcohol or drugs played a role in a crash that killed a Wailuku woman over the weekend.

It happened on Haleakala Highway just before 1 am Sunday.

Investigators say Roselle Kalalau lost control of her pickup and slammed into a construction barrier on the right shoulder. The truck then continued onto the left shoulder, where it plowed into a guardrail and plunged into an irrigation ditch.

Kalalau died at Maui Memorial Medical Center.

It's the second traffic fatality on the Valley Isle this year.
