Police say they responded to a hit-and-run car crash Wednesday morning, and then later found and cited the driver who fled the scene.
Juneau Police Department Sgt. Dominic Branson said in a release that police received the initial report of the accident at about 9:40 a.m. on Mendenhall Loop Road near Mall Road.
An officer met with the victim — an uninjured 48-year-old female driver of a 2012 Honda Civic — on scene, as additional patrol officers searched the area for the driver who fled.
Police located the suspect vehicle about 18 minutes later, parked and unoccupied at a home on Stephen Richards Memorial Drive. It was a 1995 Chevrolet Blazer with about $1,000 in damage.
Police said an investigation revealed the driver of the Blazer was 22-year-old Purnell Mitchell. He was cited for negligent driving, driving without a valid license and failing to give immediate notice of an accident.
Police said no injuries were reported in the crash.
The Honda Civic sustained about $3,000 in damage.
