State Troopers spokeswoman Beth Ipsen said another driver found Rodney Gosuk of Togiak on a roadway early this week without his jacket, shirts or pants, the Anchorage Daily News reported Friday.
Ipsen said the driver of the pickup that dragged Gosuk had found him drunk in the backseat of her and needed help from another person to get him out. When she drove away, Gosuk grabbed the back of the truck and his shirt got caught on the ball hitch. He was pulled behind the truck for for 1.7 miles, Ipsen said.
Gosuk was being treated for abrasions and bruises at Alaska Native Medical Center in Anchorage, the newspaper said.
