The Kenai Spur Highway was closed, just around 8:00am, due to a serious two-vehicle accident. We got details this morning, from CES Captain Terry Bookey..
Capt. Bookey: “At 7:56 this morning, CES was called to a two-vehicle car crash at Mile 3.5 of the Kenai Spur Hwy. Units arrived 10 minutes later, about 8 minutes later actually, and found there was a minivan that hit a small two-door car. The occupant of the car was declared deceased on scene and the occupant of the minivan was transported to Central Peninsula Hospital for what appears to be non life threatening injuries.”
The Alaska State Troopers expect their investigation into the accident to leave the highway closed until roughly 10:00am.
