3 people now in stable condition after two-vehicle collision; man killed in crash identified

Police say fault in crash still being determined

This story has been updated to remove past details about the driver killed in the crash.

Three of the four people injured in a two-vehicle collision Saturday at the Fred Meyer intersection are now in stable condition, a Juneau Police Department spokesperson said Tuesday. Officials also released the name of a driver who was killed in the collision.

The cause of the crash remains under investigation, JPD spokesperson Erann Kalwara said.

Dennis Tyson, 59, of Juneau was driving a maroon 2004 Dodge truck that collided with a blue 1999 Ford Ecoline van at the intersection, which is considered by many officials and residents to be among the most dangerous in Juneau.

A 42-year-old woman who was in the truck, and a 37-year-old woman who was driving the van with her two 8-year-old daughters as passengers were medevaced out of Juneau for advanced medical care following the crash.

Kalwara said Tuesday the three people in the van were in stable condition as of Tuesday afternoon. An updated condition of the woman in the truck was not available.
