ANCHORAGE- Alaska State Troopers say a 27-year-old Anchorage woman is under arrest after a pickup truck she was driving nearly struck a trooper head-on.

Autumn Alexandra Ray is charged with numerous counts including assault on a police officer, driving under the influence, and reckless endangerment.
Troopers say a 1998 Toyota pickup drove from a ditch onto an oncoming lane in south Anchorage Saturday, nearly striking the trooper, Howie Peterson. Troopers say Peterson took evasive action and drove into the ditch, then later stopped the vehicle on Huffman Road. Ray was arrested.
Troopers say that while the trooper was trying to stop the truck, a female passenger jumped from the moving vehicle. The woman was not injured.
Ray is represented by a public defender, who did not immediately respond with comment Tuesday.
