JUNEAU - A 45-year-old Juneau woman was taken to Bartlett Regional Hospital by ambulance after she was extricated with the Jaws of Life from her vehicle on Egan Drive.

The woman, whose name was not released by police, had been driving a 1997 GMC Jimmy outbound on Egan Drive when she was hit by a 16-year-old girl making a turn in a 2000 Ford Ranger at about 2:30 p.m. Monday.

The woman had non-life-threatening injuries, police said.

The accident occurred at the intersection near Fred Meyer.

The 16-year-old girl was turning into the big box store when she hit the Jimmy, police said. The Jimmy rolled at least once.

The girl and her passenger, a 69-year-old Juneau woman, were not injured.

Traffic on Egan Drive was re-routed for about an hour while emergency personnel investigated the crash and removed the damaged vehicle from the roadway.

No citations had been issued by late Monday afternoon.
