A day after a double motorcycle fatality on Maui, a separate near-fatal motorcycle accident occurred last night in Kahului. The accident was reported at 9:37 p.m. at the Kane/Vevau Street intersection.
Maui police say Abel Ventura Jr., 58, and Marlene Debnam, 56, both of Maui, died at the scene. Both were part of a pack of over 50 motorcycles that were riding together as part of an organized St. Patrick’s motorcycle rally.
