Advertiser Staff

A 30-year-old Kihei man was killed Monday in a single-car accident on Honoapiilani Highway about 0.1 miles east of mile marker 11 in Ukumehame area of Lahaina.

Maui police said Wednesday that Christian V. Jensen was driving his 1998 Jeep east on Honoapiilani heading in the Maalaea direction when the vehicle went off the road and hit an embankment and guardrail before going off a cliff to the rocky shoreline below.

Jensen was ejected from the vehicle before it went off the cliff and died at the scene.

The crash happened between 1 and 7 a.m. Monday and the crash scene wasn't found until about 10 a.m. Tuesday, police said.

Jensen's death is Maui County's seventh fatality for 2010, the same amount at this time last year.
