Man dies in one-car Anchorage crash

Posted: Tuesday, May 19, 2009

ANCHORAGE - A driver in his late 20s died and another man was critically injured in a one-car crash on Anchorage's east side.

Just before 9 p.m. Sunday, the men were headed south at a high rate of speed on the Seward Highway near Tudor Road.

Police say the car crossed the median, flipped and came to rest on the shoulder of the opposite lane of traffic. The driver was ejected.

Police closed northbound traffic at Dowling Road.

The injured man was in his 60s.

Police Lieutenant Dave Parker says the car would have had to be going quite fast to do such extensive damage.

Names of the victims were not immediately released.
