ANCHORAGE, Alaska — Alaska State Troopers say a 65-year-old Valdez man has died after he was pinned beneath his four-wheeler on a trail near Eureka.

Troopers say Ben Hopper was found dead on the Dillinger Pass trail. Troopers responded in a helicopter and found Hopper and the overturned vehicle on a remote section of the trail Wednesday evening.

Troopers say Hopper had lost control of the four-wheeler while making a steep descent. The vehicle flipped and pinned Hopper beneath it.

The body was being sent to the state medical examiner's office for an autopsy.
