HOMER, Alaska-On Sunday morning, Soldotna dispatch received a call reporting a motor vehicle collision that occurred at mile 22 of East End Road to the east of Homer, Alaska. When Kachemak Emergency Services and the Alaska State troopers arrived at the scene, they found one occupant of the two vehicles deceased.
According to the Alaska State troopers, a 2005 Ford F-150 operated by Peter Basargin of Homer, was westbound headed towards town with another vehicle, a 2003 Honda Pilot traveling behind. The Honda was being driven by Cornily Reutov, age 45.
