1 injured in rollover

Responders extracted a woman from her vehicle Monday afternoon after she rolled down the ditch near Mile 102 of the Sterling Highway.

Alaska State Troopers spokesperson Megan Peters said the driver was alert when responders arrived, but was entrapped in her vehicle.

Troopers received a call from a witness about the rollover at 1:43 p.m.

She was transported to Central Peninsula Hospital. Peters said the woman’s injuries are not life threatening to troopers’ knowledge.

Peters said the woman was the only occupant in the vehicle and overcorrected while driving, but it is unclear why.

Troopers are investigating the crash and have not released the driver’s name, Peters said.
