Posted: Monday, January 06, 2003

KENAI - A 48-year-old man died over the weekend in a traffic accident on an icy road in Nikiski.

Thomas Harrick of Nikiski died at the scene of the single-vehicle accident, which occurred early Saturday afternoon on Holt-Lamplight Road.

Alaska State Troopers said witnesses reported seeing a red 1993 Ford pickup driving westbound toward the nearby Kenai Spur Highway.

Witnesses said the man was driving erratically before he either got out or fell out of the truck about half a mile from the highway. The vehicle stopped with its rear wheels on his chest.

Passers-by freed Harrick before the arrival of paramedics, who pronounced Harrick dead, troopers said.
