Update on 12/1/20 at 8:40 AM:

Initial indications are that a blue 2000 Subaru Outback was being driven northbound on the Seward Highway when it crossed over the center line directly in front of a southbound 2016 white Ford F350 pickup which caused the two to collide.  The adult male driver and sole occupant of the Subaru was declared deceased at the scene.  His name will be released once next-of-kin notification procedures have been completed.

 

No arrests or citations have been issued at this time.  The reason for the Subaru crossing into oncoming traffic is still under investigation; there was blowing snow in the area at the time.  It will not be known if drugs and/or alcohol were factors until toxicology results are received.
