Victim of Monday's motorcycle crash in stable condition at Bartlett Hospital

Police said a citation is pending in the case
Juneau emergency responders treat a man and a woman injured in a vehicle/motorcycle accident at 3rd and D Streets in Douglas Monday evening. The two were taken to Bartlett Regional Hospital by Capital City Fire/Rescue. A woman driver of the vehicle was not injuried.

A motorcyclist and his passenger were taken to the hospital Monday evening after being struck by a car near Third and D Streets, in Douglas.

Police said the driver of the 1996 Harley Davidson motorcycle, identified as 52-year-old Juneau resident Randall Ford, was admitted as a patient at Bartlett Regional Hospital and is currently in stable condition, according to BRH spokesman Jim Strader.

Ford had a female passenger with him at the time of the incident. Her condition is not yet available since police have not released the woman’s name, only identifying her as a 51-year-old local resident. Police described her injuries as non-life threatening.

The driver of a 2001 Saab traveling on Third Street in the direction of Sandy Beach attempted to turn left on D Street and struck the motorcycle, according to an information release from JPD spokesman Lt. David Campbell. Police and Capital City Fire and Rescue responded to the scene at about 6:05 p.m.

Campbell said Tuesday he did not know the cause of the accident, but usually these type of accidents take place because the driver did not see the motorcycle. He said alcohol does not appear to be a factor.

A citation against the driver of the Saab, identified as 52-year-old Juneau resident Kim Mungle, is pending as the investigation continues, Campbell said.
