ANCHOR POINT, Alaska (AP) - An Anchor Point driver and a passenger were seriously injured Thursday in a Sterling Highway crash.

Alaska State Troopers say a truck driven by 29-year-old Mathany Christine Satterwhite broke down and was parked near Mile 145.5.

Anchor Point resident Nathan Sargeant came to Satterwhite’s aid and pulled his van in front of the pickup to jump-start it.

Just before 6 p.m., a sport utility vehicle driven by 29-year-old Larry Pyatt of Anchor Point approached from the north.

Troopers say his SUV slid and struck the pickup.

The truck hit Satterwhite, who was trying to connect jumper cables. She was thrown into the ditch and she suffered serious injuries.

Her passenger, whose name and age was not listed, was pinned between the truck and van. Troopers say her injuries are life-threatening.
