Van driver involved in wreck identified

The driver of a van involved in a single-vehicle accident near Clam Gulch on Monday has been identified and issued a citation for the wreck.

Scott Marvin, a 60-year-old man from Washington, has been identified as the driver of the van which carried a total of eight people, said Alaska State Troopers Public Information Officer Megan Peters in an email. Six people were injured when the van he was driving went off the road and rolled over near mile 120 of the Sterling Highway.

Marvin was issued a citation for “basic speed,” Peters said. The Alaska State Troopers do not have information regarding the conditions of those injured in the wreck, she said.

“We don’t provide medical updates on individuals unless they die, which, thankfully, does not appear to be the case for this incident,” Peters said in an email.
