The Juneau Police Department is investigating a vehicle crash that severely injured a 13-year-old girl.
The crash, which resulted in the girl being medevaced to Seattle, occurred near Gold Creek, said JPD public safety manager Erann Kalwara in a news release.
The 13-year-old girl suffered extensive trauma to her legs, pelvis and head, Kalwara said. She’s currently in serious condition in the intensive care unit at Harborview Medical Center said Susan Gregg, a spokesperson for the University of Washington Medicine system.
“The Jeep was driving inbound on Egan in the right lane and the collision appears to have occurred in or near the crosswalk near Gold Creek,” Kalwara said. “The operator of the Jeep was a 39 year old Juneau man driving with a 45 year old passenger, also from Juneau. Multiple good Samaritans stopped to assist after the collision, providing aid and directing traffic until responders arrived on scene.”
The names of those involved were not released according to department policy.
