JUNEAU — The Juneau Police Department and Capital City Fire & Rescue responded to a single vehicle rollover accident on Egan Drive next to Fred Meyer Monday evening.

The vehicle, a 1991 maroon Nissan truck, was totaled and later impounded as evidence.

Egan Drive was shut down between Fred Meyer and the McNugget intersection for over a half-hour.

The driver and sole occupant was identified as a 47-year-old man, though no name was provided by police. He sustained multiple injuries and was transported to Bartlett Regional Hospital for treatment.

Alcohol is considered a contributing factor to the crash and drunk driving charges are anticipated, police said.
