ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - Alaska State Troopers say an investigation is continuing into a crash that killed two people on the Seward Highway just south of the junction with the Hope Highway.

The crash killed 37-year-old Presence Bissonette of Seward and 42-year-old Kaying Lee of Anchorage near Mile 54.

Trooper say Thao apparently lost control on the icy highway



Lee was a passenger in the pickup. Lee and Bissonette died at the scene.

Thao and two other passengers were transported by LifeMed helicopter to an Anchorage hospital.
