2 die as Fairbanks car slides on ice, hits pickup

Posted: Wednesday, March 23, 2011

FAIRBANKS — Alaska State Troopers say a Fairbanks woman and one of her passengers died when their Honda Civic slid on an icy curve and collided head-on with a pickup truck.

Troopers identified the driver as 22-year-old Melisa Stoutenberg and the passenger as 23-year-old Alan Oines, also of Fairbanks.

The Fairbanks Daily News-Miner quotes the investigators as saying the car slid into the oncoming lane Monday afternoon.

Another passenger and the pickup’s driver were taken to the hospital.

Troopers say alcohol does not appear to be a factor, and only the driver of the pickup truck was wearing a seat belt.
