Victim dragged almost two miles after his clothing got stuck
TOGIAK – Alaska State Troopers say a 38-year-old Togiak man was dragged almost two miles in the village after his clothing got stuck on the back hitch of the vehicle.
Troopers say Rodney Gosuk was injured and intoxicated when he was found partially naked in the middle of a road in the village.
Troopers were notified Tuesday night by the village public safety officer and flew to Togiak the following day.
According to troopers, the truck driven by a Togiak woman dragged Gosuk for 1.7 miles.
Troopers say Gosuk was fully clothed when the incident began and he sustained bruises and abrasions from being dragged on an icy road with gravel patches.
Gosuk was flown to the Alaska Native Medical Center in Anchorage for treatment.
Troopers say the investigation continues.
