Two-car accident slows traffic on Kenai Spur

No one was injured in a two-vehicle collision on the Kenai Spur Highway Sunday afternoon.

Two Kenai Police Department officers responded to the accident at about 2:30 p.m. between a Hyundai Elantra and a Chevy Equinox at the intersection of the highway and Linwood Lane .

The two cars collided when Cala Lott started a left turn in her Equinox onto the spur from Linwood, while Rosemarie Ray, in the Hyundai, was driving toward Soldotna in the left lane of the highway. The two women did not see each other — Ray said there was another car alongside her in the right lane — and collided. Neither driver was injured.

“My air bags deployed, both of them,” Ray said, adding that the impact cracked her windshield on the right side of the car.

Traffic slowed as it went around the vehicles, but did not have to stop, while the women waited for the cars to be towed.

“We have to get some stuff out of the car,” Lott said while waiting for a break in traffic. The words “Just Married” were still visible on the car from when Lott was married in July. She had just gotten the car in May, she said.
