WAILUKU, Hawaii (AP) - A 19-year-old California man died when his car drove off a cliff on Maui.

Maui police say Martin Castro Jr. was found Thursday afternoon near D.T. Fleming Beach in Kapalua (kap-ah-LOO’-ah).

The Maui News (https://bit.ly/1sE5XxI) reports a resident spotted a sedan upside-down in water 60 feet below an area overlooking a bay north of the beach park.

Police say the car left the Honoapiilani (hahn-oh-pee-LAHN’-ee) Highway, drove up an embankment and off the cliff.

Police say speed may have been a factor in the crash.



Maui County ocean safety rescue personnel recovered the body.

Castro was a painter working on Maui.

The traffic death is Maui County’s 17th this year.
