ALAKANUK, Alaska (AP) - A 21-year-old woman in the southwest village of Alakanuk (ah-LAK’-ah-nuk) died Tuesday when her all-terrain vehicle crashed.

Alaska State Troopers say Cecila Chikigak was driving fast near the city office when her ATV left the road and struck a metal shipping container.

Chikigak was thrown from the ATV. She died at the scene.

The state medical examiner will conduct an autopsy.

Alakanuk is 15 miles from the Bering Sea on the east entrance of Alakanuk Pass, the major southern channel of the Yukon River.
