 An Anchorage man faces felony charges after the van he was driving under the influence rolled, killing three people in Atka last Tuesday.

28-year-old Sonny Iloilo was driving nine employees of Atka Pride Seafoods on a straight stretch of road toward the airport when the vehicle drifted off the roadway. Alaska State Troopers say he over-corrected, causing the vehicle to roll multiple times.

According to Troopers, neither Iloilo nor his passengers were wearing seatbelts; and speed and impairment of the driver contributed to the fatal crash.
