ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) – Two drivers died in Anchorage in a head-on collision on the city’s east side.
Three cars were involved in the crash Wednesday night on Tudor Road.
Police say a driver in a Jeep traveling east shortly before 9:30 p.m. sideswiped a sedan near Baxter Road and continued east. Occupants of the sedan suffered what police say are minor, non-life-threatening injuries.
The Jeep then drove through a turn-only lane into oncoming traffic and struck a small car head-on.
Emergency responders pronounced both drivers dead at the scene. Neither vehicle carried passengers.
The crash is under investigation.
Police have not released names of the people killed.
