Icy roads have caused a number of accidents in Juneau today (Friday).
Egan Drive inbound at Fred Meyer was closed briefly at about 10:30 after a two-vehicle accident at the Yandukin intersection that totaled a PT Cruiser and a Dodge Durango. Police re-routed traffic to Glacier Highway for about 20 minutes, until they were able to open up one inbound lane. The driver of the PT Cruiser was cited for failure to yield and taken to Bartlett Regional Hospital for treatment of non-life threatening injuries.
Not long after that accident, there was a single-vehicle roll-over at Tee Harbor that sent a driver to the hospital with unknown injuries. Police says that vehicle was also totaled.
