Icy conditions lead to crashes
Icy weather was blamed for a crash on the Kenai Spur Highway Saturday afternoon.
Cynthia Felton, 51, of Nikiski crossed the center line and hit John Eimer, 49 and also of Nikiski, around 1 p.m. Both were driving dodge pickups, according to Alaska State Troopers spokesperson Beth Ipsen, and were transported to Central Peninsula Hospital for injuries.
Traffic was rerouted through the Blue Grouse Drive-In's parking lot, so the road was not closed, Ipsen said.
