This story has been updated.

A Juneau man was struck and killed by a truck on Glacier Highway early Tuesday morning, said a Juneau Police Department spokesperson.

Dylan Haisler, 32, was hit by an eastbound vehicle and pronounced dead at the scene by Capital City Fire/Rescue personnel, said JPD Lt. Krag Campbell in a news release.

“At about 6:43 a.m., the Juneau Police Department received a report of a male being hit by a vehicle in the intersection of Shell Simmons Drive and Glacier Highway,” Campbell wrote in the release. “JPD and CCFR responded to assist.”

Based on preliminary information, Campbell says, Haisler exited a vehicle still on the roadway and was struck by another vehicle travelling east. The driver of the other vehicle, a 41-year-old man, was uninjured. Police did not identify the driver.

It’s too early to speak to Haisler’s motivations in exiting the vehicle, the possible involvement of drugs or alcohol or the possibility of forthcoming criminal charges, Campbell said in an email. The investigation is ongoing.

The next of kin has been notified, Campbell said.
