ANCHORAGE -

A Willow woman died early Saturday when she was ejected from her SUV in a rollover on the Parks Highway, according to Alaska State Troopers.

In a Saturday AST dispatch, troopers say they were first informed of the wreck, roughly 25 miles south of Cantwell at Mile 195 of the highway, at about 1:50 a.m. Brittany Hyatt, 26, was declared dead at the scene.

“Investigation reveals that Hyatt was driving a 2002 Chevrolet Trailblazer south on the Parks Highway when she failed to negotiate a sharp left curve and went straight off the right side of the road,” troopers wrote. “The vehicle then entered a steep ditch and rolled numerous times, ejecting her. She was not wearing a seat belt.”

AST spokesperson Beth Ipsen says troopers believe Hyatt was headed home after work.

“It appears that she was driving back from her job in the Denali National Park area,” Ipsen said.

The ditch where the SUV rolled over took place was about 10 feet deep, with a grade of between 45 and 60 degrees.

“It rolled somewhere between four to five times,” Ipsen said. “There was a large debris field -- it was a pretty violent rollover.”

Ipsen says no determinations have yet been made about whether speed, drugs or alcohol were factors in the crash, pending toxicology results.

“There were no witnesses, but we got multiple 911 calls,” Ipsen said. “They actually tried looking for Brittany, but it was the trooper who found her and attempted CPR.”

Hyatt’s next of kin have been notified. Her body will be sent to the state medical examiner’s office for an autopsy.
