ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — Three motorcyclists killed in a crash on a key Alaska highway north of Anchorage have been identified.

Alaska State Troopers spokesman Tim DeSpain says 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 says the husband was taken to a hospital as a precaution but wasn’t injured.

Troopers says 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.
