Man Killed in Truck Accident on Minnesota Drive in Anchorage, AK

Anchorage, AK -- March 7, 2023, a man was killed due to an accident where a truck hit an overpass along Minnesota Drive.

Initial details about the incident say that it happened at the Hillcrest Drive overpass along Minnesota. It appears a truck hauling machinery somehow hit the overpass and came to a stop. Afterward, a vehicle crashed into the machinery, though it's unclear if the machinery fell in the road or was still on the truck.

The man in the vehicle that hit the machinery died as a result of the accident. No other injuries were reported. Police have yet to release additional details.

To be rather blunt, I see few scenarios where this happens without the truck driver or their employer doing something wrong. Truck drivers have a responsibility to know how tall their vehicle and its cargo is. They also have a responsibility to know if their route allows for that height or to otherwise pay attention to warning signs at overpasses. So what the hell happened here?

Did the driver not do a pre-trip check to verify the height of the cargo? Did their employer send them on the wrong route? Does this overpass not have clearly visible height markers? Has this sort of incident happened at this particular location before? And perhaps most importantly, what decision is the reason that a man didn't make it home to his loved ones on this awful day? Hopefully authorities are still working to get clear answers about what went wrong.
