ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - The van driver suspected of driving impaired in a crash that killed three on an Aleutian Island is out of a hospital and in state custody.

Alaska State Troopers say 28-year-old Sonny Iloilo (il-OY-loh) was arrested Wednesday night on a felony warrant.

He is charged with three counts of manslaughter, 12 counts of assault and one count of driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs.

He is jailed in Anchorage.

Iloilo on June 14 drove a van carrying nine passengers in Atka.



Troopers say the van at high speed drifted off a straight stretch of road, overcorrected, rolled and came to rest on its side.

The crash killed 43-year-old McCullough Jr., 51-year-old Mike Tunohun Jr. and 47-year-old Paul Nicholas Nesbit, all of Anchorage.
