ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — A woman died Thursday in a traffic crash on Anchorage’s east side.

Anchorage police say the woman was a passenger in a car that collided shortly before 3 p.m. with a sport utility vehicle at Debarr Road and Edward Street.

The woman died at the scene. Her name was not immediately released.

The woman driving the car was taken to a hospital with life-threatening injuries. The crash killed a dog in the car.

A man driving the SUV was not injured.

The cause of the crash is under investigation.


This story has been corrected to show that the person driving the car involved in the crash was a woman, not a man.
