Woman in Serious Condition After Being Hit By Falling Ice
ANCHORAGE - A woman is in critical condition at a local hospital, 32-year-old Amanda Lawton, according to Anchorage dispatch.
Lawton, who is believed to be a firefighter, was headed north in her red pickup truck when she was struck by an avalanche near Beluga Point early Friday evening.
