A Lahaina woman is fighting for her life today after a horrific crash yesterday in Lahaina.
Maui Police say the 32 year-old woman was attempting a left turn across Honoapiilani Highway near Pohaku Akeo Street in a blue Toyota Corolla sedan just before 6 p.m.
Her car was broadsided by a silver Toyota 4Runner heading south. The woman sustained life-threatening injuries and was transported to Maui Memorial Medical Center in critical condition. The 4Runner driver, a 28 year-old Kahului man, was only slightly injured. He appeared to have been wearing his seatbelt at the time of the crash while the woman’s seatbelt did not appear to be in use.
The involvement of speed, alcohol and drugs are under investigation.
