Police have cited 22-year-old Juneau resident Kate Iten for negligent driving and failure to give immediate notice of an accident.
According to a JPD press release, multiple 911 calls came at about 7:30 Wednesday night, reporting a single-vehicle rollover crash near Mendenhall Loop and Mall Road. Responding officers found an upside down truck canopy and evidence of significant damage to a vehicle.
Witnesses provided a description and license plate number for a 1999 Nissan pickup.
Officers found the truck at a James Boulevard residence. An investigation determined Iten was driving when it crashed.
Damage to the truck was estimated at $2000. Officers think alcohol was involved.
No further information was released.
Police also say they have suspect in an early morning non-fatal stabbing on Douglas.
At 2:30 Thursday morning, officers responded to a disturbance in the Crow Hill Drive area. They contacted a group of intoxicated men, including a 20-year-old with a stab wound to the abdomen.
An investigation revealed the men were fighting, when one of them produced a knife.
The victim was taken to Bartlett Regional Hospital for treatment.
Police did not release the suspect’s name. The incident is under investigation.
