ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - A Kenai man confounded authorities early Tuesday, saying he had been in a plane crash.

Responders couldn’t find a downed plane as reported by Denis Straughn.

Alaska State Troopers spokeswoman Megan Peters tells the Anchorage Daily News (https://is.gd/1xP3pV) that it was only when Straughn was interviewed at an Anchorage hospital did they learn he was actually in a vehicle crash. He also said he was with a “Harley Davidson.”

Hours later, troopers were informed of a pickup off the highway near Bird Point. There were two people in the pickup, including the driver, Harley W. Davidson of Anchorage. Peters says it appears Davidson fell asleep while driving Straughn and a woman to Soldotna.

She says there were no serious injuries, and no immediate indication that drugs or alcohol were involved.
