Two occupants of a car navigating dangerous roads in Hawaii escaped nearly unharmed after they plunged off a 100-foot cliff on Maui, Hawaii.

According to local news reports, the tourists were driving near Makamakaole Gulch on Kahekili Highway early Tuesday morning when their car veered off the highway and over the cliff. According to the Maui News, the car plummeted off the cliff around 2:30 a.m.

One man, a visitor from South Carolina, escaped from the crashed car and hiked up the cliff for an hour before finding help from a resident around 5:30 a.m. Tuesday, according to the report. The pair then called emergency services for aide.

Fire and rescue crews then helped evacuate the second man, from California, from the vehicle. Both men were treated and released from a local hospital for minor injuries. The men have not yet been identified.
