Wasilla man dies in Alaska Highway crash

Posted: Tuesday, September 28, 2010

ANCHORAGE - Alaska State Troopers say a Wasilla man died in a two-vehicle crash on the Alaska Highway.

Medics from Tok and U.S. Customs were dispatched late Sunday afternoon to Mile 1230, about 8 miles from the U.S border station.

Investigators say a small passenger van crossed the centerline and crashed head-on into an oncoming 22-foot U-Haul truck pulling a pickup.

The driver of the van, 79-year-old Foster Heaven, was declared dead at the scene. A passenger, 74-year-old Margaret Heaven, was transported to Tok Medical Center with what troopers called minor injuries.

The driver of the U-Haul, Richard Dunham of Fairbanks, was not injured.

Troopers say road conditions may have contributed to the collision.
