A 24-year-old man suffered serious injuries Thursday evening after a two-vehicle crash, police say.
Around 5 p.m., police received a report of a two-vehicle collision involving a truck and a motorcycle in the 9900 block of Stephen Richards Memorial Drive, Juneau Police Department said in a news release. JPD and Capital City Fire/Rescue responded to the area, but were told that prior to their arrival the motorcycle driver was taken to Bartlett Regional Hospital in another vehicle.
The driver’s injuries are serious, but aren’t considered life-threatening, according to police, and his condition was stable as of Friday afternoon.
An initial investigation into the crash showed that a pickup truck driven by a 39-year-old woman pulled into the roadway where the man was driving a dirtbike when the two vehicles collided, according to police. The woman was uninjured.
Contrary to some social media posts, the truck did not drive away after the collision, according to police. The vehicle was moved a short distance from the crash, but the driver remained on scene for police.
No arrests or citations have been made, and the collision is under active investigation, according to police.
