FAIRBANKS, Alaska (AP) - A 38-year-old Fairbanks motorcycle driver died when his bike crashed northeast of the city.

Alaska State Troopers say Alexander Holder died in the accident late Tuesday night.

A witness told troopers that Holder was traveling at high speed on the Old Steese Highway when he lost control and drove into trees.

He crashed and was ejected into a creek.

Emergency responders from the Steese Volunteer Fire Department attempted life-saving measures but Holder died at the scene.



The state medical examiner will conduct an autopsy.
