Alaska State Troopers responded to a motorcycle crash with injuries on the Seward Highway near McHugh Creek Tuesday night.
According to AST spokesperson Beth Ipsen, troopers received multiple calls about the crash at Mile 112 of the highway just before 9:30 p.m.
“It was a motorcycle: single-vehicle, single-person,” Ipsen said. “It lost control on the curve and struck the rock wall.”
Troopers at the scene say the rider's injuries were non-life-threatening in the crash. Although the motorcyclist hit a rock and his bike came apart, he was wearing a helmet and troopers say it probably helped him.
A witness told troopers the rider wasn't speeding at the time of the crash.
The highway was temporarily closed in both directions while the rider received a medical evaluation. Both lanes have since been reopened.
