Alaska State Troopers were notified of a death in the community of Togiak at 2 pm on Wednesday. A female caller reported to troopers that she had discovered 53-year-old Joshua Andrews trapped under his vehicle in their driveway. Andrews had been working on the truck when the vehicle fell from its supports and trapped  him underneath.
