ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) – Anchorage police have released the names of two drivers killed Wednesday in a head-on collision.
Police say 29-year-old Joshua Stafford and 30-year-old Theodore Dickerson died in the crash in east Tudor Road. The cause remains under investigation.
Police say three cars were involved.
Stafford was driving east in a Jeep shortly before 9:30 p.m. Police say he sideswiped a sedan near Baxter Road and continued east. Occupants of the sedan suffered non-life-threatening injuries.
Police say the Jeep then drove through a turn-only lane into oncoming traffic and struck a small car driven by Dickerson.
Emergency responders pronounced both drivers dead at the scene. Neither vehicle carried passengers.
