Man dies after being struck by CBJ truck while laying in drive-through lane of bank near Mendenhall post office

Armando Sanchez, 38, struck during early morning hours of June 1; JPD notified of death Tuesday.

This is a developing story.

A 38-year-man died after being struck by a city-owned truck while laying in a drive-through lane of the Mendenhall Valley branch of True North Federal Credit Union during the early morning hours of June 1, according to officials.

Armando Sanchez was medevaced out of Juneau for treatment, with Juneau Police Department investigators notified Tuesday of his death, according to an information release issued Wednesday by JPD. City Manager Katie Koester confirmed Thursday the truck that hit Sanchez was a City and Borough of Juneau vehicle.

The incident remains under investigation, according to Erann Kalwara, a JPD spokesperson. In an email Wednesday, she stated “there was no indication of impairment of the driver” of the truck when police responded to the scene of the accident.

The JPD release states dispatch received a call reporting the incident at about 4:55 a.m. June 1.

“The 58-year-old male caller was operating a white 2015 Chevy truck,” the release states. “He drove around a corner into the drive-through lane and did not see the man laying in the roadway immediately around the corner. When the caller stopped, the man sat up, was conscious and talking. It appeared that the cowling of the truck had rolled over the man.”

JPD officers and Capital City Fire/Rescue officials who arrived at the scene determined the man was conscious and had sustained abrasions on his back, according to the release. He was transported to Bartlett Regional Hospital for evaluation and treatment of his injuries before being medevaced outside of the city.

The bank complied with a JPD request to provide all available surveillance imagery related to the incident, said Lauren MacVay, True North Federal Credit Union’s president and CEO, in an interview Thursday.

“Because it’s an active investigation we’re going to direct all inquiries to JPD,” she said.
