AS 09.05.030. Service On Personal Representative of Deceased Nonresident; Substitution of Personal Representative.

(a) The death of a nonresident does not revoke the appointment of the commissioner of administration by the nonresident as attorney under AS 09.05.020. If the nonresident dies, an action growing out of the accident or collision may be begun or prosecuted against an executor or administrator duly appointed by the state, territory, or district of the United States or foreign country where the nonresident is domiciled at the time of death. Service of the summons shall be made on the commissioner of administration. Notice of the service and the copy of the process shall be given to the nonresident's executor or administrator in like manner, with the same force as service on a living nonresident.

(b) An action or proceeding pending in a state court, in which the court has obtained jurisdiction of a nonresident under AS 09.05.020 , does not abate by reason of the nonresident's death. The nonresident's executor or administrator duly appointed in the state, territory, or district of the United States or foreign country where the nonresident is domiciled at the time of death, shall, on the application of the plaintiff, be brought in and substituted in the place of the nonresident, and the action or proceeding shall continue.
