It was suicide, but she was so drunk that she did not realize what suicide really meant, I think.
The way I see it at the end, Alaska didn't have much control over herself. She went on auto pilot, if you read they way I read, constantly overthinking it all, you would see that she did stuff weather she wanted to or not. She didn't care about a lot of the stuff she did, and from the standpoint of somebody who has studied psychology I will say that she didn't kill herself. She wouldn't do that to people, she wouldn't do that to her dad, or Pudge, or the Colonel, or Takumi. She wouldn't treat the people she cares about that way, because then she would just be failing them again, and I think that failing people was Alaska's biggest fear. She failed her father when she was young, and as she grew she saw herself failing other people. Every time she got all sad and what not, it was because she had failed somebody. In the end, she failed her mom, for the second time, so she tried to fix it, she drove away. If you ask me she was dead the moment Blue Citrus left the campus. She died the moment, when nobody would ever see her alive again. She died before the crash, and what caused her death, was something as simple as failure. She failed her mom for he second time, and I think she died of plain old sadness. In my mind people can be so sad that they just die, without killing themselves, there brain just can't take it, so it says shut down. I think that that is how she died, her brain couldn't stand the pain of failure, so it shut down the parts that hurt in a hope to eliminate the pain, and when it shut those things down, it killed her. Though I doubt anybody else would agree with my logic, that is the way I see it. When she escaped the view of people, she shut down, her brain was able to make the car go for a while after she died, her last responses, like a chicken running around with it's head cut off. The last message from her brain was straight and fast, and it was meant for something else, and as her body shut down, her brain took it too literaly, and her dead body drove straight and fast until it hit the cop car.
Accident. the way she told her boyfriend (can't remember his name) that she'll call him back, and she told Pudge "to be continued" and i think she was just trying to get past the cop car and the truck, so she can reach her mother's grave. probably even cried a little, and the tears in her eyes and the alcohol, made it hard to see clearly. and maybe she tried to wipe the tears from her eyes, and didn't look at the road early enough to notice the jackknifed truck and the cop car, until it was too late. i mean, if it was suicide, why didn't she do it close to the school, or on her mother's grave so she can be next to her. and why did she get upset when the water got to her books ? if she wanted to kill herself, then she wouldn't be upset about something like that. it was an accident
