Man cited for reckless driving and insurance violation, released at scene, according to JPD.

This story has been updated with additional information.

Six vehicles were damaged and a pedestrian hospitalized when hit by a car in the parking lot of Costco on Saturday afternoon, according to the Juneau Police Department.

The driver responsible, Reginald W. Marvin, 74, of Juneau, was cited for reckless driving, and failure to carry and show proof of insurance, and was released at the scene, according to an information release and a subsequent statement issued by JPD. A spokesperson for the department stated she was unable to respond during the holiday weekend to questions about why Marvin was released at the scene.

The incident occurred at about 2:30 p.m. when Marvin drove a red 2006 Chevy Malibu the wrong way through the crowded parking lot struck a pedestrian and several other vehicles, according to JPD.

“The pedestrian was thrown onto the hood of the Chevy Malibu, which then struck a parked red Dodge truck with enough force to cause damage totaling both vehicles,” the release stated. “The Dodge truck spun around and struck several other vehicles. The Chevy Malibu hit two more vehicles after it crashed into the truck.”

The pedestrian, a 42-year-old man, landed on the ground next to the vehicles involved. He was taken to Bartlett Regional Hospital for treatment of his injuries and has since been released.

Two of the vehicles were totaled, three sustained significant damage and one vehicle sustained minor damage, according to JPD.

A manager at the local Costco store declined to comment about the incident.

No charges or cases were listed for Martin in the Alaska Court System’s online database as of early Tuesday morning.
