ANCHORAGE (AP) -- A city man was killed Wednesday when he was thrown from his truck after it clipped another vehicle on the Seward Highway, police said.
Mark Darrell Crossman, 47, was speeding and weaving in and out of traffic when the accident occurred just before 8 a.m., witnesses told police.
Crossman's Chevrolet Blazer flipped over several times. He was not wearing his seatbelt and was thrown from the vehicle, which hit him as it overturned, police said.
Crossman landed in a ditch in the highway median. He was taken to Providence Alaska Medical Center where he was pronounced dead.
The driver of the other vehicle, Robert Stone, 31, of Anchorage, was not hurt.
