JPD investigates two recent vehicle crashes

On the heels of a fatal car crash Saturday morning, the Juneau Police Department investigated two more vehicle accidents recently, one involving life-threatening injuries, according to information from JPD.

A driver lost control of his scooter, which struck a concrete median on Riverside Drive early Saturday morning, according to a release from JPD. Capital City Fire and Rescue responded and transported the driver to Bartlett Regional Hospital for treatment of apparent life-threatening injuries.

JPD responded Monday to a call from a woman who said she had been in an accident downtown on Egan Drive.

Officers determined a vehicle driven by Sharon Zuboff had crashed into a pickup truck driven by Claire Hesson. The crash forced JPD to close the left lane of Egan Drive in the area for about 20 minutes. JPD cited Zuboff for failing to maintain a safe distance. No injuries were reported, and damage to Zuboff’s car is estimated at $3,000.
