Troopers identify persons involved in fatal accident on Seward Highway

Two Anchor Point residents were identified Saturday afternoon as the fatal victims in a three-vehicle crash that happened Friday afternoon near mile 49 of the Seward Highway.

Alaska State Troopers said 62-year-old James Campbell and 65-year-old Margaret Campbell were in a Toyota pick-up truck that collided head-on with a Chevy Blazer.

The Campbells were reportedly not wearing their seatbelts and ejected from the pick-up and died on scene, according to troopers.

The crash happened around 4:40 p.m. Friday and troopers said a GMC Yukon was unable to stop and rear-ended the pick-up truck.

47-year-old Richard Patterson, of Sterling, was identified as the driver of the Chevy Blazer and he was treated for injuries after being entrapped.


Troopers said the SUV went 20 feet off the roadway and into the north-bound ditch.

35-year-old Sara Linderman, of Anchorage, was driving the Yukon and troopers said Linderman and her two passengers were uninjured.

The cause and circumstances of the crash were still being investigated by troopers.

The crash delayed traffic in the area for several hours and reopened Friday evening
