ANCHORAGE -

A single-vehicle crash near Ninilchik Tuesday morning ejected a driver from his truck and seriously injured him, according to Alaska State Troopers.

In a Tuesday AST dispatch, troopers say they responded at about 7:45 a.m. to reports of the crash near Mile 2 of Oil Well Road, where they found 44-year-old Kenneth Kvasnikoff and the wreck of a 1993 Chevrolet truck that had been heading east.

“The vehicle crossed the center lane of travel before driving on the opposite shoulder,” troopers wrote. “The vehicle then rolled multiple times. Kvasnikoff was not wearing a seat belt and was ejected from the vehicle sustaining serious injuries.”

Ninilchik medics took Kvasnikoff to Central Peninsula Hospital in Soldotna. As of Tuesday evening, CPH staff say they don’t have a patient listed under his name.

AST spokesperson Megan Peters says no initial information was available on the cause or circumstances of the crash.

“It’s under investigation,” Peters said. “We’ll be waiting for toxicology (results) and all that information as it becomes available.”
