Minor injuries after rollover crash

Local police and fire crews responded to a single vehicle rollover accident on Glacier Highway at Blackerby Street Tuesday morning.

According to a Juneau Police Department release, officers found a 1997 GMC overturned on the bike path around 7:45 a.m. An investigation found that a 61-year-old woman lost control due to the slippery road conditions, left the roadway and went over the embankment rolling onto the bike path. The woman was pinned in the vehicle, but was extricated by Capital City Fire and Rescue. She was taken to the hospital for minor injuries and she was released, the release states.

There was about $5,000 worth of damage to the vehicle. No charges were filed.

JPD encouraged drivers to drive with caution during snowy, icy conditions.

“During the latter part of winter, the weather can be deceptive and driving with care will help avoid accidents,” the statement read.
