No major injuries reported following crashes

Week starts with wrecks.

Three cars were involved in a crash Tuesday morning at the intersection of Mendenhall Loop and Mall Road.

Capital City Fire/Rescue Assistant Chief Ed Quinto said one car had to be towed from the scene, however, all three drivers declined transport to Bartlett Regional Hospital or further care from paramedics.

“The crash this morning at approximately 8:30 a.m. involved three people only, one driver for each vehicle, two of the people were evaluated and all three declined treatment from our department, so no transport and no major injuries,” Quinto said. “Two of the cars were stationary at the time when the third vehicle came up on the other two. One vehicle had to be towed while the other two I think were able to be driven away from the scene, but airbags were deployed on all three vehicles.”

A spokesperson for the Juneau Police Department said very few details have been released at this time aside from the number of vehicles involved and the report of no injuries. JPD said a citation was issued to one of the drivers for basic speed.

Monday crash

Additionally, it was reported that another crash occurred at 4:20 p.m. on Monday at the intersection of Glacier Highway and Alaway Avenue, according to police.

JPD received a call of a head-on motor vehicle collision, involving two vehicles, a 2019 maroon Hyundai Elantra driven by a 37-year-old man and a 2021 white Toyota RAV4 driven by a 75-year-old man. Police did not identify the men.

According to police, the Elantra was traveling outbound on Glacier Highway between Central Avenue and Alaway Avenue. The RAV4 was traveling inbound on Glacier Highway at the same location when the Elantra crossed the centerline into the opposite lane resulting in a crash with the RAV4, causing both vehicle’s airbags to deploy.

CCFR transported both drivers to Bartlett Regional Hospital for a medical evaluation. The drivers of both vehicles were the only occupants in the vehicles and the injuries are not considered serious, according to police.
