ANCHORAGE, Alaska — The Anchorage Police Department has released the name of the person who died in the early morning crash into the Muldoon entrance gate at Joint Base Elmendorf Richardson.
APD said 44-year-old Brenda Kae Davis was declared dead at a local hospital and no other people were hurt.
Police said Davis slammed a hummer she was driving directly into the Muldoon entrance gate of Joint Base Elmendorf Richardson at about 2 a.m. Monday.
The gate, which was closed for the evening, is located on Provider Drive, just west of Muldoon Road off the Glenn highway.
Police say one witness saw the woman -- whom they estimate to be in her 40s -- driving at speeds between 50 and 60 miles per hour before she crashed into the gate.
Anchorage police officers on the scene said there didn't appear any skid marks on the ground, or any other indication that the woman tried to stop before she hit the gate.
