STERLING, Alaska (KTUU) - One driver is dead and another suffered serious injuries Monday after a head-on crash on the Sterling Highway.

Alaska State Troopers say officers responded to the scene at mile 72.5 around 1:40 p.m. Monday on a report of a collision involving two vehicles.

Troopers say a silver 2014 Subaru Impreza driven by 28-year-old Griffin Powley-Webb of Anchorage crossed the center line and hit the tan 2010 Toyota pickup driven by 71-year-old Ann Mary Gabler of Anchorage.

Powley-Webb was pronounced dead at the scene of the crash, while Gabler was airlifted to a hospital with “serious injury.” Troopers said they believe Powley-Webb crossed over into the northbound lane of the highway, just a few miles outside of Sterling.

Troopers said an investigation into the crash is ongoing and next of kin have been notified.
