Anchorage, Alaska — Two wrecks less than an hour apart killed three people Friday night, including an infant, and a fourth person, a child injured in the second crash, died Saturday, said Alaska State Troopers.
According to Alaska State Troopers spokesperson Megan Peters, at about 5:20 p.m. a motorcycle and an SUV crashed at Mile 64 of the highway, killing the two people riding the motorcycle, 46 year-old William A. Tillery and 45 year-old Angela R. Tillery, both of Anchorage.
Shortly after that wreck a pick-up truck and another SUV collided at Mile 45. Troopers say five month-old Haley Watt was killed in that collision and four others, including four year-old Levi Watt, were transported to a hospital. Levi died Saturday, said Troopers.
Troopers are investigating both wrecks. Traffic was left at a stand-still through the night and Troopers were advising drivers to turn around. The highway re-opened at 3 a.m. Saturday, according to Peters.
