Update - Victim Identified: Fatal Vehicle vs. Pedestrian Traffic Collision; Minnesota and 35th

Update on 1/21/21:
The victim has been identified as 25-year-old Angyla N. Green.  Next-of-kin notification procedures have been completed.

Update on 1/19/21:
At 7:27 PM on January 15, 2021, Anchorage Police responded to 35th Avenue and Minnesota Drive in reference to a vehicle versus pedestrian collision. Initial indications are that two pedestrians were crossing eastbound in the northbound lanes of Minnesota in front of traffic. Drivers were forced to slow down quickly to avoid them. The operator of a 2007 silver Ford Explorer was travelling in the far right-hand lane when he struck one of the pedestrians. The driver initially slowed but then left the scene without exiting his vehicle. Upon arrival officers began life-saving measures on the adult female victim. Medics arrived shortly thereafter and declared the victim deceased.
After officers blocked off the roadway so the area could be processed by the Major Collision Investigations Unit (MCIU), one of the officers was approached by an adult male who stated he was the driver who had hit the pedestrian. The driver was cooperative with police; no charges have been filed at this time and the investigation is ongoing. While impairment is not believed to be a factor on behalf of the driver, toxicology tests will ultimately determine whether or not alcohol and/or drugs were involved.
The victim’s identity will be released once next-of-kin notification procedures have been completed.
Update on 1/15/21 at 11:20 PM:
All lanes of traffic on Minnesota are now open
