MOOSE PASS, Alaska (AP) – A Kenai Peninsula truck driver died when heavy equipment he was hauling shifted forward and crushed the cab of his semi.
Alaska State Troopers say the accident Wednesday afternoon killed 46-year-old Marc Roderick of Anchor Point at Mile 33 Seward Highway near Moose Pass.
Roderick was pulling a trailer with an excavator on it.
Troopers say the semi left the snowy roadway and struck a rock wall.
The excavator moved forward and crushed the cab.
Roderick was pronounced dead at the scene.
Troopers continue to investigate the cause of the crash.
