GLENNALLEN, Alaska — A 56-year-old man died Saturday after falling from the back of a pickup and striking his head.

The man's name has not been released.

Alaska State Troopers took a 911 call just after 4 p.m. from Meier's Lake Lodge at Mile 170 Richardson Highway that a man had fallen while his truck was parked at the lodge's gas pumps.

The caller said the man was unconscious.

Emergency medical technicians arrived to give the man aid. They began transporting him but called trooper to request assistance for a medical evacuation by helicopter.

A LifeMed helicopter landed at Mile 149 but the man was pronounced dead at 6:23 p.m., about two and a half hours after the 911 call.

An autopsy by the state medical examiner is planned.
