Crews clears debris from three-car crash on Egan

Traffic is moving again

Two cars have been removed from Egan Drive following a car crash earlier this morning, according to the Juneau Police Department.

JPD responded to the collision on Egan Drive near the McDonald’s this morning, saying on Twitter that outbound traffic, heading north away from downtown Juneau, was blocked.

Crews have begun to remove the vehicles, and the Department of Transportation is on site to clean up debris.

Police received a report of a three car accident at about 8:24 a.m. Friday morning, according to JPD Public Safety Manager Erann Kalwara.

Kalawara said in an email that all three vehicles received disabling damage and appeared to be totaled. While there were no significant injuries reported, Kalawara told the Empire that two of the people involved were transported to Bartlett Regional Hospital and later released.

One of the drivers, 32-year-old Bradley Bethel was cited for causing the crash, Kalwara said. Bethel was cited for failure to stop for a red light. He was driving a 2008 GMC Yukon.

The other two drivers involved were a 59-year-old woman driving a 2003 Chevy truck and a 45-year-old man driving a 2013 Toyota Sequoia, according to Kalwara.

No drugs or alcohol were involved, police said.
