APD investigation into officer-involved collision closes Mountain View Drive for several hours
The intersection of Mountain View Drive between North Pine and North Lane streets is closed as the Anchorage Police Department and Anchorage Fire Department investigate an officer-involved collision.
Police said in a community alert just after 6 a.m. Sunday that officers responded to a crash at Mountain View Drive and North Bliss Street.
"Initial indications are that an APD officer was traveling code (lights and sirens) eastbound on Mountain View to help officers on another call," APD wrote. "A Ford Explorer was driving northbound on N Bliss when it pulled out onto Mountain View to make a turn; the officer braked but was unable to stop and T-boned the Explorer."
APD says the officer and people in the Explorer were transported to local hospitals with injuries that were not life-threatening.
Police say the Mountain View Drive and North Bliss Street intersection does not have traffic signals but a stop sign is on North Bliss.
In their morning alert, APD advised that all lanes eastbound and westbound on Mountain View Drive would be closed for "at least another hour and possibly longer."
Just after 11 a.m., police confirmed that Mountain View Drive was reopened.
