HANA, MAUI (HawaiiNewsNow) - The driver whose SUV plunged off a cliff on Maui in May is now wanted for murder in connection with the crash, which killed her twin sister.

A grand jury indicted Alexandria Duval, 37, for second-degree murder in October. A warrant was issued for her arrest last week, and investigators believe she is on the mainland.

Witnesses said they saw the twins fighting in their vehicle in the moments before their SUV plunged off a 200-foot cliff along Hana Highway in East Maui. The SUV was going nearly 50 mph.

According to court documents, the SUV accelerated, made a sharp turn into a rock wall, and showed no signs of braking.

Anastasia Duval died in the crash and Alexandria was arrested and charged with second-degree murder while she was trying to catch a flight to New York just three days later.

But in June, a Maui judge dropped the murder charge against Duval due to insufficient evidence. Duval was then released.

Just two months later, in August, Duval was arrested in New York for drunk driving. Police said she was pulled over after nearly hitting an investigator's car. Officers said her blood alcohol level was more than three times the legal limit.

It's not clear where she is now, but authorities believe she may still be in New York. Anyone with information on her whereabouts is asked to call police.

Duval's bail is set at $3 million.
