ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - At least two people have died in a two-vehicle collision at Alaska’s Denali National Park and Preserve.

Park spokeswoman Kathleen Kelly says the Monday morning crash occurred on the Parks Highway about 1.5 miles south of the park entrance. One of the vehicles was fully engulfed in flames and the front of the other vehicle, a pickup truck, burned.

Those killed were the two drivers, and Kelly said the bodies will be sent to the state medical examiner’s office for autopsies.

It’s unknown if any others were involved in the crash. There are no known witnesses to the accident, which Kelly said occurred on clear road conditions.

Because the crash occurred within park boundaries, the National Park Service is leading the investigation rather than state troopers, who are assisting.
