STAMFORD, N.Y. (AP) — A woman from Hawaii who'd been accused of killing her twin sister after their vehicle plunged off a Maui cliff has been arrested in upstate New York on drunken driving charges.

State police say 37-year-old Alexandria Duval, of Maui, was arrested Monday in the village of Stamford.

Authorities say she was stopped after almost striking a vehicle operated by a state police investigator. They said her blood alcohol content was 0.26, more than three times the legal limit. Information on her lawyer wasn't immediately available.

The sisters were traveling on a highway in May when their Ford Explorer crashed into a rock wall and plunged about 200 feet.

Duval was arrested on a second-degree murder charge, accused of deliberately causing her sister's death, but a judge later dropped the charge.
