A woman who was killed in a crash in Mililani early Sunday morning has been identified as 19-year-old Shana Kieffer.
Honolulu Police say about 6:50 a.m. the car Kieffer was driving lost control, hit a utility pole and went down an embankment.
Her family members went to the crash scene just hours after hearing the devastating news.
They say Kieffer was on her way to meet her boyfriend and had called him on the phone just minutes before.
Police say she was not wearing her seat belt.
“When officers got there they found a white ’08 Chevy Malibu that had slid down the side of the embankment and the lone female driver had been ejected,” HPD Lt. Bobby Towne said. “We’re definitely looking at speed as a factor. Alcohol we’ll have to wait for toxicology. In this case, I think a seat belt would of really helped and definitely the speeding is a huge factor in this case.”
Kieffer leaves behind two young children.
Police have extra patrols out during this Memorial Day weekend.
