Posted: June 8, 2014 - 7:18pm  |  Updated: June 8, 2014 - 7:39pm

A 30-year old Kasilof man was killed after he rolled his all-terrain vehicle while riding with his 3-year-old son Friday night.

Alaska State Troopers reported that Benjamin Kruse lost control of his ATV a little after 11:30 p.m. on Red Ribbon Road near Mile 113 of the Sterling Highway in Kasilof. The boy was uninjured in the accident. Kruse and his son weren’t wearing helmets, according to a troopers dispatch.

Kruse was pronounced deceased on the scene. Alcohol is believed to be a factor in the collision, according to the report. Next of kin and the State Medical Examiner’s Office were notified. The investigation is ongoing.
