HEALY, Alaska (AP) - A 56-year-old Healy woman has been killed in a hit-and-run accident.

The Fairbanks Daily News-Miner reports (https://is.gd/VYfsFc) the body of Gitte Stryhn was found Thursday morning off the Healy Spur Road in Healy, which is about 10 miles north of the entrance to Denali National Park.

Alaska State Troopers suspect she was hit about 5 a.m. as she rode her bike to work as a tour bus driver to the Kantishna Roadhouse. Her body was found about a block from her work place.

Later Thursday, troopers arrested 30-year-old Dustin Dollarhide of Healy on charges of manslaughter, driving under the influence and failure to report an accident.

Stryhn was originally from Denmark. Friends say she worked the last six summers driving tourists to the roadhouse 92 miles inside Denali National Park.
