ANCHORAGE (AP) -- Four people were killed in three separate accidents in Anchorage, police said Thursday.

The accidents occurred Wednesday night and early Thursday morning.

Just before 1:00 a.m. two people died when their car went off the Glenn Highway about 200 yards from the Muldoon exit. The car flew off an embankment and came to rest at a wooden fence in the back of a trailer park. Walter Graham Jr., 32, a passenger, died instantly. The driver, Brian D. Litzinger, 36, was ejected and found lying by the side of the road. He died en route to Alaska Regional Hospital, police said.

It appears the car was speeding.

Less than two hours later, Anchorage police responded to a one car accident near Raspberry Road and Northwood Street. Stephen N. Indahl, 22, was killed after losing control of his car and it slammed into a Chugach Electric power box.

Police said alcohol may have been a factor in the accident.

On Wednesday night, a woman was killed after being hit by a car as she attempted to cross Northern Lights Boulevard at the corner of Rose Street.

Police said the woman ran out in front of the car, leaving the driver no chance to stop. The identity of the woman was not being released until relatives could be notified. The driver of the car was Munik K. Wilson, 25.
