Anchorage police say a 27-year-old woman has died after a crash in Midtown early Wednesday morning.
APD spokesperson Dani Myren says Catherine Cope was pronounced dead at the Alaska Native Medical Center, where she had been taken with critical injuries.
Anchorage police responded to the two-vehicle crash, at the intersection of Northern Lights Boulevard and A Street, at about 2:30 a.m.
According to APD, a white 2013 Chevy Tahoe heading west on Northern Lights Boulevard struck the side of a white 1991 Jeep Cherokee that was traveling north on A Street.
Police say a 16-year-old boy was driving the Chevy Tahoe. There were four people in the Jeep, two each of whom were taken to ANMC and Providence Alaska Medical Center.
According to Myren, the Tahoe's driver was uninjured and released to his father, and nobody else in the crash suffered serious injuries. There was also a Pitbull dog in the Jeep, which APD said appeared uninjured.
No citations or charges have been issued in the crash, and police are still investigating the accident to determine which vehicle had the right of way. Any witnesses of the crash are asked to call Detective Rick Steiding at 907-786-2669.
