Alaska State Troopers confirm two people are dead resulting from a collision that involved five vehicles about a mile north of Beluga Point on the Seward Highway on Thursday afternoon.
Two others were injured in the accident.
The initial collision was between a truck pulling a trailer and a sedan. The two killed were in the sedan, as was one of those who were injured.
A two-mile stretch of highway has been closed until about 5 p.m. today. Vehicles heading south are being turned around at Potter Marsh by Anchorage police.
