Maui highway crash leaves 5 dead, 2 seriously hurt; cops suspect speeding, alcohol as factors
KIHEI, Hawaii (AP) ' Police suspect speeding and alcohol were factors in a crash that killed five people under the age of 21 on a Maui highway over the weekend.
Police say a car driven by a 21-year-old man and carrying five passengers lost control Sunday and spun into oncoming traffic on Kula Highway. It collided with a sedan carrying three people.
The impact of the collision tore the car in half, and all five passengers were ejected and killed. Police say only the driver was wearing a seat belt.
Those killed were identified as Remington Taylor, Steven Shaw, Annastachia Cruz-Kalua, Ambrose Momoa and Karl Barrack. All were ages 19 and 20.
The driver is hospitalized in stable condition, as is a 55-year-old passenger in the sedan.
