Wanted Man in Critical Condition
Man wanted on sexual abuse charges hit by van
He was wanted on child sex abuse charges – then the 42-year old Anchorage man was hit by a van near Girdwood on Sunday.
State Troopers say Patrick Davids is now hospitalized in critical condition.
According to court records, a warrant was issued Friday for Davids on several counts of sexual abuse of a minor.
A van apparently hit Davids as he was trying to cross the road – troopers closed the highway for several hours to investigate.
He was taken to the hospital with life threatening injuries.
“It’s not the first time they’ve had to cope with weather conditions [and] darkness – it’s part of being a trooper,” said trooper spokesperson Beth Ipsen.
Troopers say they cannot comment on the sex abuse charges because the investigation is still underway.
