ANCHORAGE -

One of the three men injured in a March 3 Sterling Highway crash near Anchor Point has died from his injuries.

Alaska State Troopers say 51-year-old Mark Shufelt of Homer succumbed to his injuries Thursday around 5 p.m.

Troopers reported Thursday that Shufelt was at the wheel of a 1998 Toyota Tacoma pickup truck headed south near Mile 155 of the Sterling around 4 p.m. March 3.

He was flown to Anchorage after a collision with a 2005 Ford Taurus carrying two Ninilchik men, driver Donald Krech, 56, and passenger Timothy Johnson, 54.

Both vehicles left the road and rolled several times, Troopers said. Shufelt wasn't wearing a seat belt and was ejected from the truck.

Krech and Johnson both sustained non-life-threatening injuries and were taken to South Peninsula Hospital in Homer. Shufelt was initially taken there as well, but subsequently medevaced to Anchorage.

Troopers said the crash remains under investigation.
