FAIRBANKS, Alaska - A 34-year-old Fairbanks man found dead along a rural road had apparently been "car surfing" on the hood of a speeding truck.

The body of Roman Retynski was found Thursday near the shoulder of Mile 36 Chena Hot Springs Road.

A woman in the truck told Alaska State Troopers that Retynski was driving the night of June 10. They were heading toward the Retynski family cabin near the east end of Chena Hot Springs Road.

The woman is considered a witness and her name has no
