Alaska State Troopers spokesman Tim DeSpain said four motorcyclists struck a vehicle on the Glenn Highway that had been pushed into their lane Saturday night.
Three were pronounced dead at the scene. Troopers identified them as 53-year-old James Carlyle and his 48-year-old wife, Sabrina Carlyle, both of Wasilla, and 63-year-old Elaine Loew of Anchorage.
Loew’s husband is the fourth rider. DeSpain said the husband was taken to a hospital as a precaution but wasn’t injured.
Troopers said the crash occurred when a Ford F-250 stopped to make a turn and was rear-ended by a Chevrolet van and pushed into the oncoming lane. All four oncoming motorcyclists then collided with the truck. No one else was seriously hurt.
