Update: Pedestrian hospitalized after crash at Auke Bay roundabout

One person was taken to Bartlett Regional Hospital.

A pedestrian was hospitalized Wednesday after a motor vehicle crash in Auke Bay, police said.

According to a Juneau Police Department release, the crash happened just before 3 p.m. on Glacier Highway before the roundabout.

Police said a 24-year-old man disembarked a Capital Transit bus that was driving outbound, and that he entered the street behind the bus, crossing in front of a blue Toyota Rav4 driving in the inbound lane that was operated by a 58-year-old woman.

“An Alaska Department of Transportation and Public Facilities employee was working in the area and came to the injured man’s aid,” the release states. He didn’t have any obvious signs of critical injuries and was alert, police said. Capital City Fire/Rescue took him to Bartlett Regional Hospital.

No one was cited in the crash, so no names have been released.
