A Hawaii woman has been charged with second-degree murder after a vehicle she was driving plunged off a 200-foot Maui sea cliff and killed her twin sister, reports CBS affiliate KBMG.

According to KHON, authorities say the sisters were also known as Allison (Alexandria) and Ann (Anastasia) Dadow.

Anastasia died at the scene and Alexandria was rushed to hospital in a critical condition.

Alexandria Duval is in custody, and judge, ordered her to be held without bond because prosecutors are fearful that she is a flight risk, according to KITV.

Prosecutors said Alexandria intentionally caused the death of her sister.

Alexandria Duval and Anastasia Duval owned Twin Power Yoga together in Palm Beach Garden, Florida.

Witnesses told police the sisters were arguing and fighting inside the auto seconds before the crash and reported they saw one woman pulling the other one's hair as the Ford Explorer approached the sharp turn in the super risky Hana Highway.

Lau says all of a sudden, the driver took off and drove right past them and off the cliff. The crash instantly killed Ann, the only passenger, but Alison survived.

Alexandria Duval was arrested on Friday because she was allegedly trying to leave the state.

Alexandria Duval, 37, entered a not guilty plea in Wailuku District Court on Monday. The twin siblings apparently changed their names and moved from Florida to Utah and then Hawaii before the fatal auto crash. Police say the 2016 white Ford Explorer fell about 200 feet. She and her sister had past arrests for driving under the influence, battery and numerous other charges. According to court documents, witnesses saw the twins arguing in the vehicle before the crash.

Eddins said the murder charge was "cold-hearted", and described the twins as "extremely close, even by identical twin standards", according to the Post. After they failed to shop up for court proceedings, bench warrants for the sisters were issued. 'We were afraid she would try to leave the country as well'.

'All we know is she was trying to leave the state'.

Alison and Ann Dadow were popular yoga studio operators in Palm Beach, Florida, where they were known for living a lavish lifestyle thanks to their profitable business. Moreover, the airbag control module in the Duval twin's Ford Explorer showed that the brakes were not engaged before the auto accelerated. Duval's next court appearance will be Wednesday for a preliminary hearing.

Alexandria's lawyer, Todd Eddins, disputed the allegations against her, saying she "did not try to harm herself or the person she most loved and was closest to in the world". They then resurfaced in Hawaii and had plans to reopen their yoga studio.

Before closing their Florida Twin Power Yoga studios, the twin sisters were fixtures in Palm Beach. Both sisters, who used to run a yoga studio in Florida, have criminal records, including public intoxication, disorderly conduct, and terroristic threatening, the story says.
