Man dies from his injuries after collision on Tudor Road
ANCHORAGE, Alaska (KTUU) - Anchorage police report that Tudor Road was closed for several hours Thursday at Kingston Drive due to a fatal car crash involving three vehicles.
Anchorage Police Community Relations Specialist Cherie Zajdzinski-Shirey told Alaska’s News Source that police responded to the report at 9:33 a.m., and subsequently blocked off Tudor Road between Patterson Street and Baxter Road.
A man was taken to a nearby hospital and died from his injuries. A woman was also taken to a hospital with non-life threatening injuries.
An updated alert said that the man who died was driving south on Kingston Drive in a Toyota Highlander and collided with the driver of a GMC Yukon that was headed west on Tudor. The third vehicle, a Toyota 4Runner SUV, also became involved in the incident, but the driver of that vehicle remained on scene with no injuries.
Anchorage police Sgt. David Noll told Alaska’s News Source that he expected Tudor Road to remain closed for a few hours. Noll also said that paramedics from the Anchorage Fire Department responded along with the major collision investigation unit.
“They will start an investigation to determine how this collision occurred but it’s still too early to tell if the weather played a factor,” Noll said. “If there are any people who witnessed this or had cameras in their cars that caught any footage of it, we would appreciate a call into dispatch.”
Tudor Road was reopened to traffic by shortly after 2 p.m., police wrote in an updated release.
