ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - Alaska State Troopers have released the names of the pilots involved in a Mat-Su Valley collision.

Troopers said Sunday the pilots of the small planes are 52-year-old Jeffry Bara of Eagle River and 35-year-old Alaska Wildlife Trooper Levi Duell of Anchorage.

Bara was flown to Providence Alaska Medical Center after the collision Saturday afternoon southwest of Wasilla.

Hospital spokesman Mikal Canfield says neither pilot is listed on the hospital directory. He says that could mean someone was treated and released, or requested exclusion from the directory.

Troopers spokeswoman Megan Peters says she doesn’t know the condition of the pilots Sunday.



Responders found two separate wreckage sites for the planes. Responders say the pilots were both found alive, one with serious injuries and the other with moderate injuries.

No passengers were onboard.
