A Kasilof man is in jail after fleeing the scene of an accident Monday.
Alaska State Troopers allege Dennis Poston, 57, was driving drunk when he struck a 2014 Hyundai SUV with his 1994 Ford pickup on Cardwell Road in Kasilof at about 8:30 p.m. Monday.
Poston fled the scene without stopping, but troopers later located the pickup. After chasing the suspect on foot into the woods, troopers apprehended Poston.
The driver of the SUV, Jaqueline Dederick, 50, of Kasilof, did not suffer any injuries in the accident, but her vehicle sustained damage from the collision.
