- FAIRBANKS, Alaska (AP) - A van towed to a fenced yard in south Fairbanks didn't stay impounded long Sunday morning. State Troopers are looking for a van that crashed through the gate of Badger Towing about 18 minutes after it was parked. KTVF-television reports University of Alaska Fairbanks police ordered the van impounded Sunday morning and it was moved inside the storage lot at 3:10 a.m. At 3:28 a.m., a security video shows the van driving rapidly backward and crashing through the gate. The van collapsed the fence and struck four other vehicles. The unidentified driver then took off. Witnesses say the driver likely was hiding under blankets in the van as it was impounded. Badger Towing owner Shawn Ross says tow drivers don't inspect vehicles before they're impounded.
