APD responds to wrecks after morning snow
A pair of Anchorage collisions Thursday drew responses from police, after a flurry of morning snow leading into a storm expected to pass through Southcentral Alaska overnight.
APD spokeswoman Renee Oistad said Lore Road was closed northbound near Elmore Road, after a crash with injuries reported just before 10 a.m.
Anchorage firefighters at the scene said two people were injured in the crash, including one who suffered a cut to one hand.
Earlier Thursday, officers headed to a single-vehicle rollover on Minnesota Drive near the 100th Avenue exit was reported to police at about 9 a.m. Nobody was injured in that crash, Oistad said.
Oistad said police had reports of four injury accidents between midnight and 10:45 a.m. Thursday, as well as 10 non-injury accidents and nine vehicles in distress. No specific problem areas of town stood out for crashes Thursday.
Thursday’s forecast calls for Anchorage to receive 1 to 2 inches of snow overnight, from a storm expected to dump up to 3 feet of power on parts of the Kenai Peninsula.
