Speed and alcohol may have been involved in the tragic death of Sara Sutton, an 18-year-old Big Island resident.

"Police found the crashed 2000 Honda two-door sedan against a macadamia nut tree at about 8:30 a.m. on Wednesday. The car crashed some time between 6 p.m. Tuesday and when the car was found, police said.

Sara was taken to Hilo Medical Center, where she was pronounced dead at 10:22 a.m.

An autopsy has been done to find the cause of death, and police want people with information about Sutton’s activities Tuesday evening to call the department’s non-emergency line at 935-3322. When alcohol is involved in a serious accident the police often want to see if the person was illegally served by a liquor establishment.
