A Wasilla woman was fatally injured Saturday afternoon when two pickup trucks collided on Bogard Road, Alaska State Troopers said.

The wreck which killed 51-year-old Jean Angus occurred just before 4 p.m. at Bogard’s intersection with Stringfield Road, according to an online dispatch. Angus had been driving a 2009 gray GMC Sierra, while the other driver – 39-year-old Steven Lawton of Palmer – was driving a 2013 brown Ford F-150.

“Investigation revealed [Lawton was headed] eastbound on Bogard Road approaching the intersection of Stringfield Road at a higher rate of speed than the posted speed limit,” troopers wrote. “[Angus] was making a left turn from Stringfield Road onto Bogard Road.”

The collision sent both trucks off the road, troopers said, where Angus was extricated from the Sierra. She was medevaced in a LifeMed air ambulance, but died en route to a hospital.

Troopers are continuing to investigate the crash, which left both vehicles a total loss. The state medical examiner’s office is slated to conduct an autopsy on Angus.
