FAIRBANKS -- A North Pole woman has died from injuries suffered in a four-wheeler accident.

Alaska State Troopers say 33-year-old Angela Brownell died after the crash about noon Monday in North Pole.

She was following her husband, who was driving a motorcycle. Troopers say Brownell suddenly swerved, and the all-terrain vehicle went out of control and rolled. She was thrown off the machine.

Troopers say she wasn't wearing a helmet and suffered fatal head injuries.
