NIKISKI, Alaska (AP) - A Kenai teenager was flown to Anchorage with serious injuries after a crash Thursday morning on the Kenai Spur Highway near Nikiski.

Alaska State Troopers say 19-year-old Kiana Edgmon drove south, crossed the centerline near Mile 17 and overcorrected.

The truck slid into the ditch along the southbound lane, rolled and pinned Edgmon beneath it.

Medics lifted the truck and extricated Edgmon.

She was flown to an Anchorage hospital by a LifeMed helicopter.
