Seward Highway Crash Leaves 1 Dead, 14 Injured
Thursday, the Seward Highway was closed in both directions due to a three-vehicle crash near Indian.
Reports say two vehicles collided head-on and a third ran into the crash…leaving one dead and 14 injured, two of them seriously.
Alaska State Troopers spokeswoman Megan Peters says that one of the vehicles involved appears to be a large van, which was full of passengers.
Peters said some onlookers climbed rocks to get a better look, and one person broke a leg after falling off.
The highway reopened Thursday night at around 9:00 p.m.
