Man, moose die in crash on Glenn Highway
A man died at the hospital early Wednesday morning after being involved in a collision with a moose on the Glenn Highway overnight.
Around 1:20 a.m. Wednesday, Anchorage Police were called to a single-vehicle crash on the Glenn Highway between the Birchwood exits. Arriving officers found a green 1994 four-door Lincoln crashed down an embankment and in a marsh.
Police say the vehicle sustained heavy damage and had tufts of moose hair on the roof. The driver, identified as 63-year-old Michael Rock, was found unresponsive inside the car.
Rock was taken to the hospital where he later succumbed to injuries he sustained in the crash.
APD discovered a deceased cow moose nearby on a bike path. The carcass was recovered by the next citizen on the moose recovery list, APD says.
APD says no other parties were involved in the incident.
