The three succumbed to injuries from the crash that occurred on Wednesday, September 30, 2009.  The accident was reported shortly after 10:30 p.m. on the Kahekili Highway, as the three were headed back to the Kana residence after dining in Kahului.

The vehicle the trio was in, swerved out of control and overturned, coming to rest near a tree, just a short distance from the Kana’s home.  Police say all three were not wearing seatbelts and authorities named speed as a suspected factor.  Autopsies on all three victims were conducted earlier this week.  Results are pending release.

The three will be remembered in a wake set for Friday, October 9, 2009 at St. Anthony Church in Wailuku.  Visitation is from 3 to 9 p.m. with a service at 6:30 p.m.  Visitation continues in the East Maui town of Keanae on Saturday, October 10, 2009 from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at the Camp Keanae YMCA gym, with burial to follow at St. Gabriel Church cemetery.
