Nikolaevsk man dies in vehicle rollover

A 59-year-old man from Nikolaevsk died in a single-vehicle rollover accident in Anchor Point Friday.

 

Ivola Usoltseff was driving eastbound on North Fork Road near the intersection of Coleman Lantern Avenue in Anchor Point at about 8:22 p.m. when he lost control of his 1995 Toyota truck, according to an Alaska State Troopers dispatch.

The vehicle entered the ditch and rolled before coming to a rest on its side. The report said Usoltseff, the only occupant, was not wearing a seat belt.

The Kenai Peninsula Bureau of Highway Patrol responded to the scene. Emergency Medical Services transported Usoltseff to South Peninsula Hospital, where he was pronounced deceased.

Alcohol is believed to have been a factor in the accident, according to the report. Next of kin has been notified. The investigation is continuing.

 

SEWARD — An inmate at the Spring Creek Correctional Center in Seward was found unresponsive in his cell early Sunday. He was declared dead at Providence Hospital at 2:30 a.m.

Deputy Director Sherrie Diagle told KTUU-TV that corrections staff is investigating the death. They are interviewing officers and inmates who were in the area at the time.

A release from the department of corrections said the inmate was living in a maximum security area.
