A vehicle crash with entrapment forced a 90-minute closure of the northbound lanes of the Glenn Highway the afternoon of Tuesday, Nov. 28.

The Anchorage Police Department sent out a public Nixle alert about the closure near the Eklutna exit at 3:44 p.m. Tuesday. Spokeswoman Renee Oistad said at least one person was believed to be injured, but didn’t have further details. The highway was reopened around 5 p.m.

Photos posted on social media showed two vehicles involved, including a pick-up truck and a sedan that suffered extensive damage, and KTUU-TV reported a LifeMed helicoper landed at the scene.

This is a developing story; we’ll update with new information.
