HILO, Hawaii (AP) - An adventure company owner is relieved that no tourists were in the van that rolled off a cliff and fell 130 feet into Onomea Bay on the Big Island.

The Hawaii Tribune-Herald reports (https://bit.ly/1KEaniM) the Tuesday morning accident injured no one as the van rolled down an embankment and eventually fell into the surf below.

A KapohoKine Adventures news release says the van was still running, but parked with the emergency brake engaged. Company co-owner Tony DeLellis says the company is investigating the incident, which he called isolated.

The five passengers and their guide continued the tour Tuesday in a replacement van.
