Troopers say 4 killed, others hurt, in Parks Highway crash
ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — Alaska State Troopers are investigating a collision on the Parks Highway that left four men dead and injured others, including a 2-year-old boy.
Troopers say the men killed Monday afternoon were among five people who had been traveling in a van that passed a commercial vehicle in a no-passing zone.
According to troopers, the driver of the van and a passenger died when their vehicle crashed into a truck traveling in the opposite direction.
Two other passengers from the van died while being transported to a hospital. The fifth person in the van sustained critical injuries.
Trooper say a 2-year-old boy in the truck was flown to an Anchorage hospital with serious injuries.
