Anchorage man dies in collision on Glenn Highway
Alaska State Troopers say a 67-year-old Anchorage man has died after his truck collided with a motorhome on the eastern section of the Glenn Highway.
Troopers say Casar Justo Lao-Ing was pronounced dead at the scene of the crash Thursday at milepost 122 of the highway.
The occupants in the Winnebago are the driver, 69-year-old William Glen Briggs, and his wife, 68-year-old Linda Lou Briggs, both of Donna, Texas.
Troopers say the couple was flown by helicopter to Providence Alaska Medical Center. Troopers say William Briggs sustained serious injuries that are not believed to be life-threatening and that Linda Briggs received minor injuries.
Lao-Ing's body was taken to the state medical examiner's office.
Troopers say they are investigating the collision, which occurred when Lao-Ing's truck crossed the center line.
