A North Pole woman died Saturday evening after her pickup overturned, state troopers said.

Crystal C. Kmiec, 34, was driving a 2008 Ford F-250 at Badger and Peede roads when the truck lost traction and went off the road, troopers said in an online dispatch. It overturned and became submerged in an adjacent slough.

“Icy road conditions and speed were a major contributor to the crash,” troopers said.
