Driver charged with homicide for 1999 fatal crash

Posted: Sunday, April 02, 2000

ANCHORAGE (AP) -- A Wasilla man has been charged with second-degree murder for an auto accident last year that killed a teenager, Alaska State Troopers said Saturday.

Nathan Strickland, 24, was arrested late Friday.

Along with the murder charge, Strickland faces three counts of first-degree assault.

The charges stem from a motor vehicle accident that occurred on April 28, 1999, on Knik Goose Bay Road.

The accident investigation concluded that Strickland's vehicle was passing in a no-passing zone when he struck an oncoming vehicle.

The other driver, 17-year-old Michael Caldwell, was killed in the crash and a 16-year-old passenger sustained severe head injuries.

The two passengers in Strickland's vehicle were also injured.
