Alaska US Senate Candidate Cited in 3-Car Crash

Monday, 06 Sep 2010 10:38 PM


The Republican candidate who defeated U.S. Sen. Lisa Murkowski in Alaska's primary election has been cited with failing to exercise due care to avoid a recent three-car collision.

Joe Miller was involved in the crash in his hometown of Fairbanks three days after the Aug. 24 election and before his surprise victory was confirmed in the counting of thousands of absentee votes and questioned ballots.

Alaska State Troopers say Miller's vehicle rear-ended a vehicle driven by Denali Park resident James Raisis, who then rear-ended a car driven by Mark Lewis of Fairbanks.

Lewis was cited with stopping on a highway. He plans to contest the citation and says he was making a left turn and had his signal on when his sedan was struck.

Troopers say no one was hurt.
