FAIRBANKS, Alaska (AP) — A 26-year-old Fairbanks woman died when her pickup rolled northwest of the city.

Alaska State Troopers say Darla Thompson died in a rollover crash on Murphy Dome Road in the Goldstream Valley.

Speed may have been a factor in the crash.

Troopers took a call on the crash shortly before 8:30 a.m. Tuesday.

Thompson was behind the wheel of the pickup when it left the roadway and rolled several times. Emergency responders pronounced her dead at the scene.

The state medical examiner will conduct an autopsy.
