Dash Cam Video Goes Viral As Truck Flies Into The Air, Crashes & Falls Apart, Landing On A Ford Pickup 

Incredibly, Neither Driver Was Seriously Injured In December Incident, Says Anchorage Police Department 

Editor's Note: For the second time in less than a month, a pickup has hit black ice, flown through the air, and fallen from one of Anchorage's overpasses into the highway below. The first time, on November 20th, a 2004 Ford pickup crashed through the Muldoon Road overpass guardrail and fell upside down onto the Glenn Highway. The Muldoon overpass leads to JBER and the new Costco Business Center. The driver was not killed. 

Then, on December 11th, it happened again. But even worse this time. A '92 Toyota pickup, driving north on the Seward Highway hit black ice. The car hurtled through the air in an astonishing crash, appearing to fall apart as it landed below on Huffman and was struck by a 2012 Ford pickup. In this case, both drivers have survived, says APD. 

A dash cam video of the second incident has gone viral.

At 9:11 AM on December 11, 2023, Anchorage Police responded to Huffman Road and the New Seward Highway regarding a vehicle that had gone off the overpass.  Initial indications are that the driver of a 92 Toyota pickup was travelling northbound on the Seward when he lost control on black ice and drove over the guardrail at the Huffman overpass.  


At the same time, a 2012 Ford pickup was being driven westbound on Huffman.  The Ford struck the Toyota once the Toyota landed onto Huffman.  

 

The driver of the Ford was not injured.  The driver of the Toyota was transported to a hospital for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries.
