A bus crash on Egan Drive Monday night may have been caused by mechanical failures, said a Juneau Police Department spokesperson.
The bus, a minibus owned and operated by the City and Borough of Juneau, is likely totaled, said Lt. Krag Campbell. There were no injuries to the driver or four passengers. The sections of guardrail that were damaged will need to be replaced and is estimated to cost about $5,000, according to police.
“The vehicle, a 2006 white GMC bus, driven by a 51-year-old male, had lost control and struck the guardrail,” Campbell said in a news release. “During the crash, the bus partially went through the guardrail and became stuck.”
The bus required a forklift to dislodge from the guardrail.
Repairs to the guardrail will have to go forward during the spring after the thaw, Campbell said. The driver was not cited for any traffic violation, Campbell said.
