2 Get Lost Hike, Then Die In Car Accident

Posted: Updated:

ROQUE BLUFFS, Maine (AP) - Authorities say two women who got lost while hiking in a Maine state park died in a car accident shortly after their rescue.
    
Thirty-seven-year-old Amy Stiner, of Machias, and 38-year-old Melissa Moyer, of Sunbury, Pa., were killed Tuesday night when they drove their car into the ocean after driving the wrong way down a road. The county sheriff says Moyer was five months pregnant.
    
Officials say the women became lost while hiking near Roque Bluffs State Park. A landowner found them and their dog and gave them a ride to a home. Authorities later took them back to their car.
    
A short time later, the women called to say they had driven their vehicle into the water - and then the phone went dead. The car was later found underwater.
