Troopers release driver’s name in fatal Parks Highway crash
WASILLA, Alaska (AP) — Alaska State Troopers have released the name of a woman killed when her sport utility vehicle was struck from behind on the Parks Highway west of Wasilla.
The impact caused the SUV to roll late Tuesday afternoon and 71-year-old Pat Buchanan of Wasilla was ejected. She died at the scene.
A woman with a revoked driver’s license was at the wheel of a sedan that struck the SUV.
Troopers say a warrant had been issued for the sedan driver for failure to appear for a hearing on an original charge of driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
Troopers impounded both vehicles.
