BETHEL, Alaska (AP) - Bethel police are investigating the death of a Kwethluk man in an all-terrain vehicle crash on the Kuskokwim River.

Police on Wednesday took a call from the Yukon-Kuskokwim Health Corp. saying 20-year-old Kenneth Nicori had died at the corporation’s emergency room. An autopsy was ordered.

Police Chief Andree Achee tells KYUK-radio (https://bit.ly/1y5TUMg) the circumstances were suspicious.

Achee says Nicori was transported in the back of a pickup and no information was given to emergency room responders.

Alaska State Troopers on Thursday flew to the accident scene on the river near the entrance to Church Slough.

Achee says there appeared to be a crash with two people on one four-wheeler.

Police say the second person suffered a head injury. The person was tracked down and flown to Anchorage for treatment.
