ATV accident leaves 1 dead, 1 missing

Posted: Monday, October 07, 2002

One man died and another was missing after an Argo amphibious ATV flipped in a creek south of Tyonek Friday night, according to Alaska State Troopers.

The ATV capsized about 10 p.m. Friday in Nikolai Creek, west of Tyonek, as three men were trying to cross the creek in it, troopers said.

None of the men was wearing a personal flotation device.

Scott Peters, 21, of Anchorage, was able to get to the bank and walk to Tyonek for help.

Troopers were notified the following morning. Helo 1 was sent to assist in the search.

Searchers from Tyonek recovered the body of Michael Constantine, 38, of Tyonek, on Saturday.

Another Tyonek man, Daniel Standifer Jr., 34, was still missing.

Troopers and Civil Air Patrol were unsuccessful in their search for Standifer on Sunday. The search was suspended, troopers said.
