Alaska RV park owner dies in bulldozer crash

(Oct. 8, 2014) -- Marvin Baker, 68, owner of Pinnacle Mountain RV and Cafe in Sutton, Alaska and leader of a conservative political group, died Monday in a bulldozer accident.

WASILLA, Alaska — A well-known Sutton RV park owner and leader of a conservative political group died Monday in a bulldozer accident, according to Alaska Dispatch News.

Alaska Dispatch News reported Marvin Baker, 68, was clearing a path through a wooded area when he lost control of the John Deere dozer and it went over an embankment and flipped.

Baker and his wife, Jill, ran Pinnacle Mountain RV and Cafe just north of Sutton at Mile 70 of the Glenn Highway. The year-round attraction is known for its impressive collection of vintage tractors, some dating back to the 1920s, and menagerie of farm animals that made it unusual even by the standards of an Alaska roadhouse, Alaska Dispatch News explained.
