Alaska State Troopers said they were not aware of a vehicle with people in it that hit a light pole but were investigating.
One witness said the vehicle started rolling on the shoulder after a driver ran red lights.
“I was in the intersection, trying to cross the street that the police were talking about … it wasn’t a bad accident, I didn’t see it coming, maybe it was just a bad driver,” said witness Jana Stokes.
Stokes said when she got across the street, she saw a black male body slumped over against the windshield with a bag of popcorn and a soda on his head.
“He was dead, it was a car. They didn’t say that I was lucky. I was lucky that no one else got hurt, that’s what I tell myself. There’s other people out there suffering from things as well, they don’t really like to hear it but they do like to know.”
Stokes said her neighbor is the guy she saw pull over to his window and wave around.
“He told me later that night the guy who was driving that was trying to run off the road was a drunk. The guy was not drunk, that’s what the other neighbors told me too.
“All I could imagine was you go out there every day looking for a job and there’s people down there, people that look like me and some people that don’t, and all you have is another human being who can’t work and you think about that every day and go, ‘damn, this is stupid.'”
Stokes thinks she was just doing her job.
“I’m a reporter, I just go out and do what I have to do to have a job so I don’t have to worry about anything.”
Alaska State Troopers confirmed Saturday that the crash occurred at Fifth Avenue and the northbound lanes.
Alaska State Troopers said police don’t know the cause of the crash at the time; they believe alcohol was involved.
