ANCHORAGE - Anchorage police said a man died in a fatal wreck that closed the Seward Highway at Fireweed Lane for several hours late Thursday.

Detective Rick Steiding said a pickup lost control while making a turn and collided with another vehicle. Steiding said the accident remains under investigation, but it appears excessive speed was a factor.

KTUU-TV reported that police identified the victim as 30-year-old Michael Vanroten, the driver of the pickup.
