HEALY, Alaska (AP) — A 26-year-old California man was seriously injured when he was hit by a camper jack that flew through his sedan windshield during a head-on collision.

Alaska State Troopers say Joshua Huerta of El Monte suffered life-threatening injuries Sunday.

He was flown by helicopter to an Anchorage hospital after the crash on the Parks Highway just north of Healy.

Troopers took a call on the crash just after 3 p.m.

Troopers say Huerta was driving north as 66-year-old Glenn Williams of Kentucky was driving south in a pickup carrying a camper.

Williams told troopers Huerta's sedan attempted to pass another vehicle in Williams' lane. Williams said he swerved but struck Huerta's sedan at an angle head-on.

The camper jack flew through the windshield and struck Huerta.
