Anchorage police identified the victim of a fatal Seward Highway crash as 82-year-old Robert Brooks.

Brooks was driving a Chevrolet Tracker north when the SUV lost control and spun into oncoming traffic around 10:25 a.m. 

A southbound Chevrolet Silverado hit the Tracker, and Brooks was ejected from the vehicle at mile 112 of the highway, near Beluga Point and McHugh Creek.

He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Both drivers were sole occupants, and the driver of the Silverado was transported to a local hospital for injuries that are not life threatening.

Highway conditions at the time of the collision included slick roads and icy fog.
