Woman killed in car accident in Anchorage

A woman died in a car accident in Anchorage on May 30, a Thursday. The accident happened on the city's east side.

Per reports from the area and the Anchorage police, the wreck happened at the intersection where Edward Street meets Debarr Road. It took place right around 3 p.m. The woman who died was not driving either vehicle but was simply the passenger in one of them. The car she was riding in slammed into an SUV.

Another woman was driving the car, and she sustained very serious injuries that emergency crews believed were life-threatening. As such, they rushed her to a hospital. Tragically, her passenger could not be saved and died at the crash site.

The two women also had a dog with them in the car. It did not survive the accident.

It appears that there was just one man in the SUV. That driver did not suffer any injuries, despite how serious the wreck was for everyone else involved.

The police are still investigating to find out why the crash happened and who was at fault.

This story shows how you really do put your life in someone's hands every time that you agree to ride in a car with them. All it takes is one mistake and they could leave you with serious injuries, or you could even pass away in the crash.

If you do get injured, or if you have a family member who died as a passenger in a crash, it is crucial for you to understand all of your potential rights to compensation.
