Man Dies in Dalton Highway Accident

A man in a motorcycle tour group died Sunday when his vehicle apparently slipped on the Dalton Highway. Robert Munn, 60, of Kinross, Scotland, was riding with his wife, Anne, on the back. She had minor injuries, he was thrown from the bike. Both had full safety gear. The highway was wet at the time. The accident happened south of the Yukon River bridge, not far from where a motorcycle crash in similar weather conditions last June seriously injured Alabama Governor Bob Riley.

Correction: Former Alabama Governor Bob Riley was seriously injured in a similar crash in June. We apologize for the error.
