Anchorage man killed in vehicle accident

Posted: Wednesday, March 22, 2000

ANCHORAGE (AP) -- An Anchorage man died Tuesday night after a car accident in Mountain View.

Investigators say Tuugasala Aau, 69, was slumped over the wheel of his Ford Escort before it veered out of its lane and into an oncoming car at about 5:20 p.m.

Aau was pronounced dead at Alaska Regional Hospital. Police Sgt. Dave Brown said police didn't know Tuesday if Aau had a medical problem or was bending over in the car.

An autopsy will be conducted to determine the cause of death. The driver of the other car, Belle Villaester, and her two children suffered minor injuries, police said.
