ANCHORAGE, Alaska — A Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson airman has been accused of a drunk driving death, killing a woman in a Sunday morning t-bone crash in East Anchorage, according to the Anchorage Police Department.
APD says Lane Douglas Wyatt, 22, was driving a Chrysler 300 that crashed into a Monte Carlo shortly before 5 a.m. Sunday at the intersection of Boniface Parkway and Debarr Road and killed Citari Townes-Sweatt, 20, the driver of the Monte Carlo.
“Officers learned that a Green 2006 Chrysler 300 had been traveling northbound on Boniface Parkway at a high rate of speed when it reportedly ran the red light and 't-boned' a white 2004 Chevrolet Monte Carlo traveling through the intersection westbound on Debarr Road,” Dani Myren, APD spokesperson, wrote in a news release. “There were a total of nine vehicle occupants between the two vehicles, four in the Chrysler 300 and five in the Chevrolet Monte Carlo. Four vehicle occupants, collectively, were transported by medics to various local hospitals while the driver of the Monte Carlo, 20-year-old Citari Townes-Sweatt, was pronounced deceased at the scene.”
