ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - A 30-year-old woman riding in a sport utility vehicle died early Wednesday in a one-car Anchorage crash.

Her name has not been released and will not be until her next of kin is notified.

Anchorage police say they took a 911 call at 2:22 a.m. that a vehicle had struck a tree in a trailer court at 34th Avenue and Boniface Parkway.

Police say the driver, 23-year-old Val Tapusoa, lost control of the SUV and it struck the tree on the vehicle’s passenger side.

Police say Tapusoa fled on foot but was found nearby in a trailer. He was arrested on outstanding warrants for probation violations.

Police say no charges have been filed in the fatal crash.
