Seward Highway Crash Leaves 1 Dead, 14 Injured

By | August 4, 2011

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.
