Good Samaritan injured in Willow hit-and-run crash

A woman helping the driver of a disabled vehicle on a Willow roadside early Thursday was recovering from leg injuries after she was struck by a vehicle that left the scene, troopers said.

A small white sedan hit 27-year-old Willow resident Antoinette Holliday, according to an Alaska State Troopers dispatch. Medics and troopers responded at about 1:15 a.m. to the scene on Long Lake Drive near Sides Drive.

"A vehicle approached at a high rate of speed and struck Holliday, who was standing on the shoulder of the road next to her vehicle," troopers wrote. "The suspect vehicle then struck the disabled vehicle before continuing on without stopping."

Medics took Holliday to Mat-Su Regional Medical Center with "moderate injuries," troopers said.

Anyone who believes they have information on the vehicle that hit Holliday or its driver is asked to call the Palmer trooper post at 907-352-5401.
