Tage Brandel Toll

Trooper Tage Toll was killed in a helicopter crash during a search and rescue mission near Talkeetna, Alaska.

Trooper Toll had been picked up by the Alaska State Trooper's Helo-1 at approximately 7:35 pm to assist in searching for a missing snowmachiner near Larson Lake. They located the subject just before 10:00 pm and were able to bring him aboard the helicopter.

The helicopter was en route to Sunshine Tesoro to meet with medics when troopers lost radio contact with it at approximately 11:00 pm. The wreckage was located the following morning after a massive search. Trooper Toll, civilian pilot Mel Nading, and the snowmachiner were all killed in the crash.

Trooper Toll had served with the Alaska State Troopers for 10 years and had previously served with the Kansas Highway Patrol.

Another year has gone by and although time has past the memories are still etched in my mind. I think of you and Mel often and wish this hadn't of happened for so many reasons. I still struggle some days and wonder how to do better. However, as some of conversations went, I am doing things to help with that and helping others to do the same with similar thoughts. Thanks for our conversations and I will always remember the times together in Talkeetna.
