Sullivan’s campaign RV tour first upon accident

From KTUU:

A head-on Parks Highway crash near Cantwell with serious injuries has closed the Parks Highway Monday afternoon, after a tour bus was rear-ended by a double tractor-trailer on the highway earlier Monday. AST spokesperson Megan Peters says the more serious of the two wrecks, reported at Mile 225 at 3:05 p.m., has closed the highway there while a LifeMed air ambulance prepares to land.

The first vehicle on the scene was U.S. Senate candidate Dan Sullivan’s RV that he was riding as part of his final primary campaign swing, from Fairbanks to Wasilla, on the day before the primary. Dan and his wife Julie were in the RV with Otto Feather, one of Sullivan’s most faithful volunteers. An advance car with Sullivan’s kids was ahead. Feather is a retired Air Force colonel, a C-130 pilot and a volunteer firefighter in the Mat-Su.  Sullivan is in the Marine reserves. When they came across the accident, they did what they could to help make the injured passengers comfortable. At 5 p.m., the time of this writing, Feather was helping guiding another air ambulance to land on the highway. There were no reported fatalities.

    Looks like the ADN psycho trolls have migrated their way over to this site. Quite a horrible accusation.

    Good on Dan and Julie and his staff –I hope they recover quickly from this emotional event. Coming up on an accident can be really hard to process.

    Nice try on the rumor mill. Dan probably isn’t trying to gain campaign attention by this–he’s just being an upstanding marine. Something that I gather you’ve never truly felt or understood.

    If you are trying to suggest that this accident was staged for campaign purposes, then you are a repulsive individual and have no credibility in political discourse. You should be ashamed of yourself, but sadly you probably will not be. You are an absolutely disgusting person.

    Didn’t Sparks stop working for Christie after they got in trouble for staging an accident on the roadway? That looks like a good, and credible news story. Without you covering this kinda stuff, who else would be positive toward Dan? Thanks, Amanda!
