Alaska State Troopers responded to the crash at 1:31 on Wednesday to investigate the circumstances and cause of the accident and found that both vehicles were traveling east on the highway when the accident occurred.
According to the report, 73-year-old Wasilla resident Wilson Carpenter and his three passengers were traveling in a 2004 Ford F-350 and 37-year-old Christopher Woods was traveling behind in his 2007 Pontiac Grand Prix.
Then, Woods lost consciousness while at the wheel due to a medical condition. When he did so, he rear-ended Carpenter ahead of him. The impact caused both vehicles to skid off the road and into the ditch, where both vehicles overturned.
Although all parties involved reported wearing seat belts, Carpenter, two of his passengers and Woods suffered minor injuries. All four were transported to the MatSu Regional Hospital for treatment.
Woods was issued a citation for Failure to Exercise Due Care to Avoid Collision.
