Truck driver charged in 2018 crash that killed Palmer woman
A truck driver has been charged in the death of a Palmer woman who died in a crash on the Glenn Highway last year.
A grand jury indicted Arthur Fox, 82, on charges of criminally negligent homicide and third-degree assault.
The crash happened Sept. 28, 2018 near the gravel pit outside Palmer.
Palmer assistant district attorney Shawn Traini said Fox was hauling rocks and failed to check his truck after he dropped the load off.
Traini said a rock fell off the truck and went through the windshield of an oncoming car. Investigators found a small boulder at the scene.
The crash killed 25-year-old Hailey Belnap.
A woman in a car following Fox’s truck was injured.
Fox is scheduled to be arraigned on the charges Sept. 12 in Palmer.
