Juneau Police are looking for the driver of a pickup truck that rolled onto its side and slammed into a power pole last night near Amalga Harbor.
According to a JPD release, a caller reported the accident last night about 9:35.
Officers determined the 2006 Ford truck had been travelling out the road, when it crossed from the outbound lane to the inbound lane, flipped onto its side and came to rest against the power pole, which was broken. The truck was totaled.
Alaska Electric Light and Power briefly shut off power in the area while officers removed the vehicle from the pole.
