Juneau police say two people were taken to the hospital after a single-vehicle rollover accident on Egan Drive on Wednesday afternoon.
The 2013 Chevrolet Camaro left the roadway and struck a light pole before coming to a rest on pedestrian bridge next to Egan Drive.
The driver and passenger, identified as a 22-year old Silver Maake and 23-year old Siaosi Maake, had to be extricated by firefighters before their transport to Bartlett Regional Hospital. The extent of their injuries was not immediately known.
The Camaro was totaled and officers say the crash remains under investigation. Speed appears to be a factor in the crash.
