An Anchorage pediatrician, Roger Gollub died after a snowmobile slammed into his dog sled during a mushing excursion in northwest Alaska. Alaska State Troopers say the 53-year-old Gollub was killed in the crash Wednesday night. Troopers spokeswoman Megan Peters says two people were on the snowmobile. She says the snowmobile was traveling in the same direction as the dog team when it hit the sled on a trail near Kotzebue. Alcohol was involved in the crash.
