A head-on collision destroyed two passenger vehicles and forced Alaska State Troopers to close Kalifornsky Beach Road near the intersection of Gaswell Road for about an hour Tuesday morning.
At about 8:47 a.m., a 2006 Chevy minivan driven by Linda Dubie, 56, of Kenai, was heading west on K-Beach when it crossed the centerline striking a 2002 Dodge Caravan driven by Margaret Moonin, 35, of Soldotna, according to troopers
Also riding in Moonin’s van were her four children. All were taken by ambulance to Central Peninsula Hospital.
Troopers said Moonin sustained two broken legs and other injuries, but none were life-threatening. She remained at the hospital as of Tuesday evening. The children were treated and released.
Dubie also was taken to the hospital, where she was treated for minor injuries.
Both vehicles were totaled and towed from the scene. According to Sgt. Dan Donaldson, at this time investigators do not suspect environmental conditions contributed to the accident. No further details were released.
An investigation into the crash is continuing.
