Man crossing Tudor Road struck, killed in early-morning collision
A man was killed early Saturday in a Tudor Road vehicle-pedestrian collision according to Anchorage police, who are still investigating the incident.
The deceased hasn’t been identified pending notification of his next of kin, police spokesman MJ Thim said.
A call reporting the collision, near Tudor’s intersection with the Old Seward Highway, came in just after 1:45 a.m. The victim was struck by a silver 2004 Kia Amanti sedan heading west on Tudor.
“The adult male was walking across Tudor Road when he was struck and injured,” Thim said. “He died at the scene.”
The driver of the Amanti stayed at the scene and cooperated with officers, Thim said. Neither of the two people in the car were injured, and no charges have been filed in the collision.
It wasn’t initially clear Saturday whether the man had been in a crosswalk at the time he was struck, as officers spoke with witnesses to the collision and reviewed surveillance video from buildings in the area.
Tudor’s westbound lanes were closed for nearly four hours following the collision.
