A 62-year-old Juneau woman has been medevac’d to Seattle’s Harborview Medical Center, after suffering serious injuries in a vehicle-pedestrian accident early this morning (Thursday).
The incident happened just before 7:30 a.m. Juneau Police say the woman was running across Glacier Highway at Davis Street when she was hit by a Jeep Wrangler driven by a 34-year-old man.
An ambulance took her to Bartlett Regional Hospital, where her injuries were deemed serious enough that she be medevac’d to Harborview, according to Bartlett Spokesman Jim Strader.
Her current condition is unknown. The woman’s name and the name of the driver have not been released. The incident is under investigation.
