Bus crashes near Twin Lakes; no injuries

The cause is unknown at this time.

A minibus belonging to Juneau Tours crashed early Monday evening into a guard rail on Egan Drive near the intersection with Vanderbilt Hill Road.

The wreck resulted in the closing of a lane of traffic, but there were no injuries, said Capital City Fire/Rescue assistant chief Ed Quinto in a phone interview shortly after the wreck.

An ambulance was dispatched to the scene, but it was recalled when it became clear no one was injured in the crash, and the ambulance would not be needed. CCFR personnel remained on scene to direct traffic around the bus, Quinto said.

The cause of the crash was unknown as of Monday evening, Quinto said. The roads were reasonably dry at the time of the crash, around 5 p.m.
