Man riding ATV hit by car, charged with DUI

Posted: April 29, 2013 - 8:56pm

A 27-year-old Soldotna man was thrown from his ATV on Friday after a colliding with a car on Kalifornsky Beach Road.

Alaska State Troopers said 22-year-old Sterling resident Austin Struthers was driving north near mile 21 of K-Beach Road when he became distracted and drove off the roadway at about 45 mph. Struthers struck Justin Millage, who was then thrown from his ATV, at about 10:42 p.m.

Struthers’ vehicle drove into a pond off the roadway and became disabled. Trooper investigation revealed Millage was operating his ATV under the influence of alcohol and was arrested for DUI. Troopers took him to Wildwood Pretrial Facility where he was held without bail because of a prior DUI.

Troopers reported that Struthers was released from the scene. It is unclear if the man faces further charges.

Nice Driving

So if you drive off the road on K-Beach doing 45 (yeah right, 22 yr old), hit a guy on an ATV and end up in a pond, you get to head on home? This cat needed to go to Wildwood as well. Who the hell does this, besides the guy last year who was cranked up on meth and bathsalts and nearly killed two women walking on the bike trail? Distracted? Nice try Staff Report, make the guy on the ATV look like the bad guy.
