Rollover accident near Paxson sends three Valdez men to the hospital
A grandfather, father, and son from Valdez are in a Fairbanks hospital following a rollover accident on the Richardson Highway Wednesday morning.
Steven Alley, Sr., Steve Alley II, and Christopher Alley were traveling to Fairbanks when their truck rolled over into a river at Mile 188, two miles north of Paxson. Christopher was able to pull his grandfather and father out of the vehicle.
Alaska State Troopers say an Army helicopter in the area spotted the crash and transported all three men to Fairbanks Memorial Hospital.
The extent of their injuries is unknown at this time.
