The rollover threw Fred McMinn, 70, from the passenger side of the vehicle. McMinn, of Rexburg, Idaho, was pronounced dead at Providence Hospital in Anchorage at 8:37 a.m.

Lusk was taken to Providence and treated for injuries.

No other vehicles were involved. Troopers are investigating the cause of the crash.
