Three crashes in 50 minutes on Egan Drive

The Juneau Police Department responded to three separate car crashes in a 52-minute span on Egan Drive Friday night.


All the crashes took place near the construction zone in the 7000 block of Egan, JPD Sgt. Krag Campbell said. None resulted in any injuries or major damage.

“All three collisions resulted in minor damages, and all the vehicles were driven from the scenes,” Campbell wrote in a press release.

Police are looking for one of the vehicles involved in one of the crashes. The release states the driver of a Jeep struck another vehicle and then fled the area by crossing into the inbound lane of Egan Drive.

A witness reported the Jeep was dark-colored, possibly maroon, the release states. The Jeep sustained damage to the front grill and possibly the headlights and was leaking transmission fluid.

Anyone has information about the Jeep or the driver can contact JPD at 586-0600.

Traffic on Egan slowed for about an hour as police investigated the crashes.
