Brake failure causes car crash with minor injuries

Posted: August 4, 2014 - 11:01pm

Police say a car that had a brake failure caused an accident downtown at about 4:45 p.m. Saturday afternoon.

A 61-year-old man driving a 1984 Merz that “lost its brakes” struck three parked, unoccupied vehicles in the 500 block of Kennedy Street near Fifth Street, said Juneau Police Department spokeswoman Erann Kalwara.

The driver sustained minor injuries but declined transport to the hospital, according to a report from Capital City Fire/Rescue. A 54-year-old woman in the passenger seat was not injured, police said.

Damage to the vehicles was moderate, police said. Alcohol was not involved.

huh?

A "Merz"...not a brand I've heard of before. Southeast Furniture Warehouse is not even connected to this building...it's next door. Makes me wonder if anything in this story is factual?
