Maui police say a 26-year-old woman died after a single-car crash in Lahaina early Tuesday.
It happened at around 1:45 a.m. on Honoapiilani Highway at Shaw Street.
Investigators say a 30-year-old Lahaina man was driving north-bound on Honoapiilani Highway when he struck two traffic signal poles.
The woman was in the front passenger seat. She was taken to Maui Memorial Medical Center where she died. She was identified as Kelley Peterson. She has no local address.
The driver was taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
Police say speed may have been a factor in the crash. The use of alcohol and drugs are pending toxicology results.
This is Maui County's third traffic fatality for this year compared with two at the same time last year. This was the second traffic fatality for the month of March.
