Wreck briefly closes 1 lane of Douglas Highway on Sunday

Posted: May 21, 2012 - 11:01pm

A crash involving two vehicles sent one person to the hospital and closed one lane of Douglas Highway on Sunday afternoon, according to a release from the Juneau Police Department.

Both vehicles were traveling in the southbound lane of Douglas Highway when the first — a 2004 Mazda driven by a 27-year-old person — stopped to make a left turn, the release states. The second vehicle — a 2007 Honda CRV driven by a 42-year-old woman — then hit the Mazda from behind.

An ambulance transported a passenger in the Mazda to Bartlett Regional Hospital for treatment of non-life-threatening injuries, the release states.

The woman was cited for careless driving. The Mazda is believed to be a total loss, and the Honda sustained about $6,000 damage, the release states. JPD closed the southbound lane of the Douglas Highway for about 45 minute to investigate the crash.
