A substantial number of car accidents on U.S. roads are caused by drivers who cross over the median or center line. Such accidents often lead to head-on collisions, and catastrophic injuries or even death is not uncommon. Alaska is no different, and a tragic cross-over car accident recently claimed the life of a driver and severely injured another.
The dispatch reports of the troopers who responded stated that the crash occurred on Glenn Highway in the early afternoon of a recent Saturday. They found that a 79-year-old man from another state was northbound in a pickup truck, towing an SUV. For reasons not yet determined, the driver apparently veered across the center, landing in the southbound traffic lane.
