1 dead, 1 seriously injured in North Pole accident

Alaska State Troopers say Elizabeth Schack, 18, of Fairbanks, died in a two-vehicle accident Wednesday afternoon near North Pole.

The accident at the intersection of Badger and Bradway roads also left a passenger in the car driven by Schack, another teenage girl, with life-threatening injuries.

Schack, driving a 2008 Toyota Corolla, pulled onto Badger Road and was struck on the driver's side door by a 1999 Ford F350 pickup driven by Jeffrey Butler, 51, of Fairbanks, Troopers said. Butler was later released with minor injuries.
