The northbound and southbound lanes of the Seward Highway have been reopen Saturday night after police responded to a vehicle accident and Department of Transportation crews worked to clear a rock slide partially blocking both lanes. 

Minor injuries were reported to police dispatch as a result of the crash. An APD dispatcher said the two events occurred close to one another, which may or may not be related.

The closure affected the area around mile 108.5, which is near Rainbow and Windy Point, according to the alert sent from the Anchorage Police Department around just before 8 p.m.

Traffic was clear as of 9 p.m., according to APD dispatch.

The closure happened one day after a rock the size of an ice cooler struck the roof of a car driving southbound just past McHugh Creek, damaging the vehicle and leaving the driver severely injured.
