A driver who failed to stop at a red light caused a car crash at the Egan Drive and Mendenhall Loop Road intersection at about 1 p.m. Tuesday afternoon, according to the Juneau Police Department.

Sgt. Chris Gifford wrote in a release that the 65-year-old driver of a 1999 Dodge truck failed to stop at the light while traveling inbound on Egan and slammed into a 2004 Chevrolet Tracker, driven by a 36-year-old woman.

The woman, whose name was not released, was taken to Bartlett Regional Hospital for treatment of non-life threatening injuries, police said. The Chevrolet was totaled.

Police identified the 65-year-old man as Timothy Corrigan and said he was cited for failing to stop at a red light. His vehicle sustained about $5,000 in damages.

Police do not suspect alcohol or drugs were involved in the crash, JPD spokesman Sgt. Chris Burke said in an interview. Texting wasn’t a factor either, he said.

“It was more of driver inattention,” he said.
