Man in critical condition after rollover accident on the Glenn

By KTVA CBS 11 News 10:38 AM February 23, 2014

Update: Anchorage police have identified the driver injured in Sunday's rollover as Cesar Meza Jr., 23. Meza remained in "critically stable" condition Monday morning, police said.

ANCHORAGE – Two people were injured, one of them critically, in a SUV rollover accident that closed part of the Glenn Highway Sunday morning, authorities said.

Around 2:20 a.m., police received a report of a single-vehcile rollover accident on the Glenn Highway at the North Birchwood exit, said police spokeswoman Dani Myren in a statement.

According to the initial call, a man was lying in the middle of the road, Myren said.

The rollover occurred after a white Saturn SUV lost control at the North Birchwood exit and flipped, police said. The driver, a 23-year-old man, was ejected from the SUV. He is in critical condition, Myren said, and was taken to a local hospital.

A 21-year-old female passenger was not ejected from the vehicle. She was transported to an area hospital and sustained minor injures, Myren said.

Outbound lanes of the Glenn Highway were closed while police and medics helped the pair, Myren said. The highway was fully reopened around 4:30 a.m.

“The accident is subject to further investigation,” Myren’s statement said. The names of the crash victims have not been released.
