  1. Is Chris OK?
    Were his kids in the car?

    • KTUU reports that Adams and two other people were transported to an Anchorage hospital. Adams remained hospitalized today. The other two persons transported were not identified, and it is uncertain which truck they were traveling in.

  2. Chris is a relative of mine. He is my brother’s son in law. When I read this I got on the phone. From what I understand he is gonna be okay. Sore, bruised and hurting, but, gonna be okay. Thank god for that. Scared me to death. Wishing everyone to drive safe.

  3. My daughter was right behind all this-said it was pretty scary. Wishing Chris and friends/family a speedy recovery!
