Just thought about it when I read this in the paper:<br><br><a href="http://www.adn.com/news/alaska/story/8831046p-8731692c.html" target="_blank">http://www.adn.com/news/alaska/story...-8731692c.html</a><br><br>

EKLUTNA -- A pickup reported to be tailgating a car on the Glenn Highway crashed and rolled across the road early Thursday, throwing the driver out of the truck, according to Anchorage police Lt. Nancy Reeder.<br><br>
The pickup, driven by Jennifer Dexter, 29, of Wasilla, came to rest under the Eklutna overpass. Dexter was flown by helicopter to an Anchorage hospital, Reeder said. She was reported to be in stable condition Thursday evening.<br><br>
Beer cans were strewn all over the roadway at the accident scene, Reeder said. The accident happened just after 2:30 a.m. and clamped down commuter traffic until nearly 7 a.m., Reeder said. The Glenn was not totally shut down, but traffic was diverted to one lane up and over the overpass.<br><br>
Dexter was heading away from Anchorage, Reeder said. A man driving a car in the same direction called police to complain the pickup was close on his car's rear bumper and was accelerating.<br><br>
The driver of the car was on the line with a dispatcher as the situation unfolded, Reeder said. Dexter apparently lost control, and her truck slammed into the guard rail in the middle of the highway, went airborne, rolled several times and landed in the inbound lanes, said Reeder.
