Anchorage man dead following Glenn Highway crash
Police say an Anchorage man is dead after a vehicle he was riding in crashed along the Glenn Highway early Sunday morning.
Police were notified at 12:20 a.m. of the crash, which occurred at the McCarrey Street overpass.
A 2011 Dodge Avenger was traveling inbound on the Glenn Highway when “the driver lost control and struck the median and guardrail,” police wrote in a release Sunday morning.
The driver and one of the vehicle’s passengers suffered injuries that were not considered life-threatening, and were treated at a nearby hospital. Thomas Shetters, 24, was a back seat passenger and was declared dead at the scene, according to police.
“No charges have been filed at this time as the cause of the crash is still under investigation,” the release stated.
Two inbound lanes of the Glenn Highway were temporarily closed during police’s initial investigation but have since reopened.
