Three-vehicle accident sends two to the hospital

Three vehicles collided Tuesday morning at the intersection of Egan Drive and Vanderbilt Hill Road. Two people were taken to the hospital with non-life threatening injuries, according to a Juneau Police Department news release.

After receiving multiple 911 calls around 10 a.m. about the incident, police officers and Capital City Fire/Rescue responded to the scene.

During the investigation, parts of Egan and Vanderbilt Hill were shut down. Traffic continued through the area, but it was delayed for about 50 minutes.

Traveling inbound on Egan near Vanderbilt Hill, 30-year-old Stuart Jack was negligently operating a 2011 Dodge pickup and struck a 2001 Dodge pickup, which was also traveling inbound on Egan. A 56-year-old man was driving the 2001 Dodge. The collision caused the 2001 Dodge pickup to collide with a 2013 Subaru Crosstrek, driven by a 68-year-old man, which was stopped in the left turn lane on Egan inbound headed to Vanderbilt Hill Road.

Both Dodge pickups sustained disabling damage and were towed from the scene. The Subaru sustained moderate damage and was able to be driven away.

A passenger in the 2011 Dodge pickup and the driver of the 2001 Dodge pickup were taken to Bartlett Regional Hospital for treatment of non-life threatening injuries.

Jack was cited for negligent driving, which is a infraction.

Alcohol was not a factor in the crash, police said.
