ANCHORAGE, Alaska — The Glenn Highway reopened Wednesday afternoon after several crashes in the Ship Creek area closed the highway for more than an hour, according to Anchorage police.
APD spokesperson Anita Shell says inbound traffic on the highway was initially turned around at Arctic Valley Road after the collisions -- including one four-car crash, two three-car pileups and several single-vehicle accidents -- were reported to police and fire units beginning at about 10:50 a.m.
Numerous vehicles involved in the wrecks were still at the scene Wednesday, including a pickup truck in the median near the Glenn's inbound Muldoon Road offramp, and a Jeep and an SUV which were both on their sides.
Shell says the collisions are weather-related due to Wednesday's snowfall, and that non-life-threatening injuries have been reported.
