Just after nine in the morning, according to Anchorage police, Dillon Hickman, 27 years old, crashed his Dodge pickup truck into a girder at the junction of Arctic Boulevard and Dimond Boulevard last Wednesdaywhile he was intoxicated. The girder-carrying semi-truck was going east on Dimond while being closely followed by several pilot vehicles.
According to the police, Hickman walked away from the scene. According to Justin Shelby, a spokesman for the Department of Transportation and Public Facilities, the girder was on its way down the Seward Highway to be used for a bridge across Portage Creek. The girder was scratched but, according to Shelby, “not compromised in any way by the collision.”
