Alaska State Troopers at 7:05 a.m. went to a single-car crash at Mile 149 Sterling Highway near Happy Valley. Troopers said a 58-year-old Fritz Creek woman driving south in a 2001 Ford F-250 pickup truck and pulling a trailer with hay bales had the trailer jack knife, pulling the truck into the northbound lane. The trailer rolled, snapping the hitch, and the hitch receiver punctured the back of the truck. The woman wore her seatbelt and was not injured. Damage to the truck and trailer was estimated at $2,000.
