Big Lake man killed in snowmachine accident

Posted: Thursday, January 25, 2001

BIG LAKE (AP) -- A Big Lake man was killed Wednesday night in a snowmachine accident, Alaska State Troopers said.

David Cooper, 48, was traveling on a trail that parallels South Big Lake Road when he apparently struck a moose and suffered fatal injuries, investigators said.

Cooper was found by a passing motorist shortly after midnight. He was unconscious and lying in a ditch beside the road.

Emergency medical technicians were unable to resusitate him and he was pronounced dead at a hospital in Palmer shortly before 2 a.m.

Alcohol and excessive speed were believed to be factors in the accident, troopers said.
