WASILLA, Alaska (AP) – Alaska State Troopers have released the name of a woman killed when her sport utility vehicle was struck from behind on the Parks Highway west of Wasilla.

The impact caused the SUV to roll late Tuesday afternoon and 71-year-old Pat Buchanan of Wasilla was ejected. She died at the scene.

A woman with a revoked driver’s license was at the wheel of a sedan that struck the SUV.

Troopers impounded both vehicles.
