The woman who died after a single-vehicle collision Tuesday east of Haines Junction has been identified as 21-year-old Daria Gladkov, 21, of Vancouver, Wash.

The collision occurred just before 11:30 a.m. at km 1556 of the Alaska Highway.

The vehicle, a Nissan Titan pickup, had two occupants when it left the highway and rolled as it crossed the ditch.

Both occupants sustained serious injuries and were being transported to Whitehorse General Hospital by Yukon EMS personnel, the Yukon Coroner’s Service said. 

“The female occupant succumbed to her injuries before arriving in Whitehorse,” the service said. 

 Gladkov and her husband, whose name was not released, were travelling from Washington to Alaska at the time of the incident. He was medvaced from Whitehorse to Vancouver with serious injuries.

 The Yukon Coroner’s Service is continuing its investigation with the assistance of the Haines Junction RCMP.

“We also extend our appreciation to both Haines Junction and Whitehorse EMS teams and the Haines Junction fire service, all of whom provided assistance,” the service said.

The police and the coroner’s service have not specified who was driving the vehicle, nor whether the occupants had been wearing seatbelts.

Alcohol and drugs have been ruled out as factors in the collision.
