Three-vehicle Seward Highway accident leaves two dead

Two Anchor Point residents died in a head-on collision late Friday afternoon on the Seward Highway. The highway was closed for about eight hours, Alaska State Troopers spokesperson Megan Peters said.

The accident occurred near Summit Lake at mile 49. It was reported at 4:40 p.m.

James Campbell, 62, and Margaret Campbell, 65, were traveling in a pickup truck and collided head-on with an SUV. The Campbells, who were not wearing seatbelts, were thrown from the pickup and died on scene. The SUV went off the road and its driver, Richard Patterson, 47, of Sterling, was trapped inside with injuries. Patterson is being treated, but Peters did not know his condition.

Anchorage resident Sara Lindemann, 35, then rear-ended the pickup, unable to stop. Lindemann and her two passengers were uninjured.
