Dead motorcyclist ID'd in KGB Road crash
A woman killed in a Tuesday collision on Knik-Goose Bay Road, as well as three other Wasilla residents who survived with injuries, have been named by Alaska State Troopers.
Motorcycle passenger Jayme Donoho, 32, died at the scene of the motorcycle-vehicle collision, troopers said Wednesday. Those injured in the crash included the motorcycle's driver, 32-year-old Brandon Haxton, as well as the occupants of a 2010 Jeep: driver Sepasetiano Laumatia, 65, and passenger Pela Laumatia, 52.
Alaska State Troopers spokeswoman Megan Peters said the crash was first reported just after 11:15 a.m. Troopers said in an online dispatch the motorcycle was headed outbound near Mile 7 of KGB when the Jeep pulled out in front of it from Commodore Lane.
"The motorcycle, a 2003 Kawasaki, impacted the Jeep on the driver's side front quarter panel," troopers wrote. "Both the driver and passenger of the motorcycle were ejected."
Ken Barkley, the borough's deputy director of emergency services, said the crash was a "T-bone" collision involving a Jeep Compass compact SUV.
"Bystanders were already starting CPR when we got there," Barkley said.
Haxton was flown to an Anchorage hospital by an air ambulance. The Laumatias were also hospitalized with non-life-threatening injuries, troopers said.
Next of kin have been notified, and the crash remains under investigation.
