A Fairbanks resident died in an accident yesterday on the Seward Highway.
The Alaska State Troopers identified 31-year-old Allen Solomon as the victim in a fatal collision at highway Mile 30, ear Moose Pass. The report said Solomon drove his car into the rear end of a Department of Transportation and Public Facilities road grader, which was plowing at the time, shortly after 1:30 p.m.
Police said it appears alcohol was “a contributing factor to the collision.” The driver was not wearing a seatbelt.
The operator of the grader did not sustain injuries, according to the report. Both vehicles were towed from the scene.
