Anchorage Police say a 65-year-old and his 6-year-old daughter were killed in a crash on the Seward Highway Monday evening. Police identified the two as Michael F. Witman and Aviendha D. Witman. The two were killed in a crash on the Seward Highway after police say a northbound Subaru crossed into the southbound lane, striking the Witmans' Jeep head-on. The Jeep then rolled and was T-boned by a Volvo driving behind it. A woman and another girl, also in the Witman family, were also in the car and taken to the hospital, police said. The Chugiak Volunteer Fire Department identified Witman as a former Chugiak firefighter, saying he'd served the Chugiak community for 17 years and had just left the department 8 months ago to spend more time with his family.
