Homer man, 2 others killed in crash

Posted: Friday, August 22, 2003

A Homer woman remained in serious condition at an Anchorage hospital Thursday after being injured in a crash that left three people dead and five injured Wednesday night.

Afimia Fefelov, 42, was flown to Providence Alaska Medical Center from the site of the head-on collision at Mile 74 of the Seward Highway.

Feodor Fefelov, 45, of Homer, and two Israeli men died in the crash.

The names of the Israelis were being withheld pending notification of relatives, according to Alaska State Troopers.

A trooper report said Feodor Fefelov was driving a Chevy pickup northbound over double yellow lines into the southbound passing lane.

The Israeli men, one age 21 and the other 22, were traveling in a rented Hyundai car in the southbound passing lane at the time of the crash.

Both drivers attempted to avoid a collision by moving into the southbound slow lane and collided head-on.

Also injured were Solomonia Fefelov, 23, and three children who were riding in the Fefelov pickup. Solomonia Fefelov was treated and released at Anchorage Regional Hospital where two of the children remained in stable condition Thursday.

One of the children is a 1-year-old, who was in a child safety seat that was ejected from the truck. The infant was found on the pavement and had minor injuries.

A trooper investigation of the accident is continuing.
