ANCHORAGE- The 29-year-old son of an Alaska Native leader has died after his sport utility vehicle rolled over in Dillingham.
Alaska State Troopers say Trefon T. Angasan was ejected from the SUV when it crashed just before 9 p.m. Tuesday.
Angasan was the son of Trefon Angasan Jr., a Native leader who currently is chairman of Alaska Peninsula Corp., which represents five Southwest Alaska villages.
The single-vehicle rollover occurred on Aleknagik Lake Road near Twin Lakes.

Angasan was not wearing a seat belt. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
The SUV was demolished.
The state medical examiner's office has requested an autopsy.
