AMBLER, Alaska (AP) - Alaska State Troopers say a woman from a northwest Alaska village has died of injuries suffered last week in a crash of two snowmobiles.

Troopers on Thursday took a call of the crash on the Ambler-Shungnak trail about seven miles southeast of Ambler.

Emergency responders found three people injured, including 24-year-old Isabel Greist.

She was transported to the Maniilaq (mah-NEE-lak) Clinic in Amber and medically evacuated to Anchorage, where she died.

Troopers say 65-year-old Frank Downey and 21-year-old Cherissa Johnson, both of Ambler, were treated for non-life-threatening injuries at the Maniilaq Clinic.

Foul weather has prevented troopers from reaching Ambler and the crash scene.

Ambler is a community of 277 on the Kobuk River 138 miles northeast of Kotzebue.
