3-vehicle crash slows Glenn northbound at Knik River Bridge
Mat-Su emergency responders say a three-vehicle pile-up with injuries Wednesday afternoon is blocking northbound Glenn Highway traffic near the Knik River Bridge.
Ken Barkley, deputy director of Mat-Su Borough Emergency Services, said the collision had briefly closed the highway just after 2 p.m. Wednesday.
“It’s three vehicles, four patients; the bridge out there is extremely icy,” Barkley said. “It’s just a domino effect, if you will; one person lost control and the others may have hit that one.”
None of the injuries are believed to be life-threatening, Barkley said.
Alaska State Troopers spokeswoman Megan Peters said nobody was entrapped in any of the vehicles involved.
"Two people have refused transport and two people are accepting transport," Peters wrote. "The degree of injuries are unknown but everyone involved was communicating with emergency personnel."
The highway reopened to traffic at about 3:30 p.m. according to Anchorage police.
Both APD officers and troopers were responding to the crash near the bridge, which marks a jurisdictional line between the two agencies' coverage.
