Palmer woman killed in single-vehicle crash
One person has died following a crash Thursday morning near Mile 39 of the Glenn Highway in Palmer, according to Alaska State Troopers.
The woman, identified by troopers as 25-year-old Hailey Belnap of Palmer, was reportedly killed when her car left the roadway and struck an embankment.
The vehicle landed on a conveyor belt owned and operated by Alaska Sand & Gravel.
"Investigation revealed that a small boulder was in the roadway," AST wrote in a release. "It is under investigation if the small boulder was a factor in the crash."
The Alaska Department of Transportation & Public Facilities will assist Troopers in their investigation.
Belnap was taken to the Mat-Su Regional Hospital and was pronounced dead at 9:27 a.m. Thursday.
She was the sole occupant of the yellow 2015 Honda involved in the crash.
Her next of kin have been notified, according to AST.
