Wasilla man, 82, dies after Knik-Goose Bay Road crash
An elderly Wasilla man died after he was involved in a Knik-Goose Bay Road collision late last month, Alaska State Troopers said.
Word reached troopers Friday that Arthur Hippler, 82, had died Dec. 5 from complications of what were originally thought to be non-life-threatening injuries in the Nov. 28 morning crash.
Hippler had been headed down Foothills Road that day in a 2005 Ford Taurus, troopers said, when he made a left turn onto Knik-Goose Bay and collided with a 2008 Hyundai Accent. Both Hippler and the other driver, 40-year-old Wasilla resident Jason Fields, were wearing their seat belts and taken to Mat-Su Regional Medical Center for treatment.
Troopers spokeswoman Megan Peters said nobody was charged or cited in the crash. She didn’t have details on what complications Hippler had suffered.
