Woman Dead After Fleeing from Troopers
46-year-old Zoe Ivanoff fled after she was cited for driving with a revoked license
ALASKA – A 46-year-old Unalakleet woman is dead after she sped away from troopers in her Nissan Pathfinder early Tuesday morning.
Zoe Ivanoff was pulled over at mile 47 of the Seward Highway, and troopers based out of Crown Point found her with a revoked drivers license, for which she was issued a summons.
According to troopers, while they waited for roughly an hour for a tow truck, Ivanoff remained in her vehicle. Around 4 a.m. she fled from officers in her car, causing the troopers to engage in pursuit.
Alaska troopers lost sight of her, but found her car ten minutes later off the side of the road and Ivanoff ejected and deceased.
Troopers attempted life saving measures but were unsuccessful.
Ivanoff's body has been sent to the medical examiner's office and next of kin have been notified.
