Feodor Fefelov

Three dead in Seward Highway crash

A crash on the Seward Highway has left three people dead and five others injured, less than a week after another collision in the area killed three people.

Alaska State Troopers say 45-year-old Feodor Fefelov of Homer died last night in the collision near mile 74 south of Girdwood. Two Israeli nationals, ages 21 and 22, also died in the crash, but troopers are not releasing their names until relatives are notified.

Troopers say Fefelov was northbound when he drove his Chevrolet pickup truck over the double yellow line onto the southbound fast lane in a no-passing zone. The Israeli nationals were in that lane and swerved into the slow lane at the same time as Fefelov, who slammed into their car.

All three died at the scene. Troopers say five passengers in the truck suffered moderate to serious injuries. Among them was one-year-old Akilina Murachev, who received minor injuries after being ejected along with her child safety seat.

On Friday, three others were killed after their car hydroplaned across the highway near mile 73 in rainy conditions and slammed into an incoming motor home.
