Woman killed after being struck by SUV

Posted: October 18, 2011 - 2:30pm  |  Updated: October 19, 2011 - 11:40am

 

A Soldotna resident was killed Tuesday morning after being struck by a vehicle.

Jennifer Rupe, 39, was crouched in the roadway checking on an injured animal when a 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee driven by Carl Rupe, 43, her husband, struck her. 

The accident occurred at 6:20 a.m.

Alaska State Troopers responded to mile one on Robinson Loop near Soldotna after receiving a call from Carl Rupe reporting he struck a pedestrian in the roadway.

Jennifer Rupe was declared dead on scene.

The driver’s visibility was believed to be hampered by fog and darkness, and he was further distracted by another vehicle’s headlights ahead of him, according report filed by Troopers. 

Rupe’s body will be sent to the State Medical Examiner’s Office for an autopsy.

Heart broken

My heart goes out to Jennifer's family and especially her husband of so many years. How devastating for them all.

Sad Story

Very, very sad story.
Methinks Clarion's editor should pay better attention to these stories. In the last paragraph in the story it says: "Next of kin has been notified." The victim's next of kin is the one who hit her!

tragic

I am so sorry this happened. Sometimes even with the best of intentions bad things happen. I hope the husband is getting some help dealing with this.
