Wasilla man dies in snowmachine crash

Posted: Monday, April 14, 2003

ANCHORAGE (AP) A Wasilla man died after he drove a snowmachine off a cliff in Hatcher Pass.

Moesey Polushkin, 34, died at the scene Sunday evening, Alaska State Troopers said.

Troopers received a call from Palmer police at about 6:40 p.m. Sunday.

Polushkin was trying out a friend's new snowmachine when he took it over a ledge of the cliff, said troopers spokesman Greg Wilkinson. Polushkin was not wearing a helmet.

A broken neck was the apparent cause of death, Wilkinson said.
