Posted: Friday, November 29, 2002

ANCHORAGE (AP) -- A 69-year-old woman died after her Subaru was hit head on by a pickup truck on the Old Glenn Highway in Birchwood.

Anchorage police identified the woman as Heidi Wallace.

The collision occurred about 2:30 p.m. Thursday.

Police said Wanda Drew, 41, was driving southbound on the Old Glenn when she lost control of her pickup, crossed the center line and hit Wallace's Subaru.

Wallace was transported to the hospital with chest injuries and later died.

Drew and a passenger were taken to area hospitals with minor injuries.

Police said speed for the road conditions may have contributed to the crash.
