Juneau woman medevaced to Seattle after being struck by vehicle

Authorities say a pedestrian was seriously injured and medevaced to a hospital in Seattle after being struck by a vehicle on Glacier Highway early Thursday morning, according to a release from the Juneau Police Department.

A police investigation found the 62-year-old Juneau woman was running across the highway from the Davis Avenue side when a 1995 Jeep Wrangler struck her.

The woman was taken by ambulance to Bartlett Regional Hospital, then medevaced to Harborview Medical Center, BRH spokesman Jim Strader said.

Strader said doctors thought the extent of her injuries “were serious enough (that it) warranted medevac to Harborview.”

Police did not release the woman’s name or the driver’s name.

Juneau Police Department Officer Chris Gifford said by phone that no charges or citations had been issued, but that the investigation is ongoing.
