Troopers release names of weekend crash victims

Posted: Friday, July 07, 2000

ANCHORAGE (AP) -- Alaska State Troopers Thursday released the names the remaining victims in a Sunday crash near Fairbanks that killed six.

Already identified were Christopher A. McFadin, 21, and Bruno J. Guglielmi, 24, both soldiers at Fort Wainwright. Their wives survived the three-vehicle crash at Mile 22 of Chena Hot Springs Road, but both were in intensive care at Fairbanks Memorial Hospital Thursday.

Also killed were four people in a 1986 Nissan pickup truck that crossed into oncoming traffic.

Three were Fairbanks residents -- Edward Grau Jr., 27, Christy Victoria Simon, 29, and Jacky L. Moore, 39, identified as the driver. The fourth was Kristine Fuit, 47, of Layton, Utah.

Moore was driving the Nissan when it sideswiped a Ford pickup truck then hit McFadin's GMC pickup, according to troopers. No one in the Ford was hurt.

Troopers say alcohol was a factor in the crash.
