Alaska State Troopers say one person is dead and another was injured following a Fairbanks collision Wednesday afternoon.
The call first came in just after 5:15 p.m., according to AST, and initial investigation revealed a 2008 Toyota Corolla was struck by a 1999 Ford F350 pickup truck at the intersection of Badger Road and Bradway Road. Troopers said 18-year-old Fairbanks resident Elizabeth Schack, the Toyota’s driver, died at Fairbanks Memorial Hospital from injuries sustained in the crash. Schack’s passenger, a second teenage girl, was also seriously injured in the collision.
Troopers said the driver of the Ford pickup, 51-year-old Fairbanks resident Jeffrey Butler, was also hospitalized but later released with only minor injuries.
