A man was killed Saturday evening when he drove his truck off an embankment on the Glenn Highway near Palmer, according to Alaska State Troopers.
Benjamin Loyer, 40, was traveling northbound around 5:30 p.m. when he began riding along the guard rail for about 200 yards. He then drove off the highway and his 2004 Chevy truck began rolling down a steep embankment. Loyer was ejected from the vehicle, and was found about 60 yards down the embankment, about 100 yards away from his truck.
Loyer was not wearing his seatbelt, and troopers said alcohol and speed are possible factors in the accident.
Troopers said Loyer was last seen 12 hours before his accident.
Troopers are continuing their investigation into the accident, and request witnesses to call (907) 373-8300 with more information.
