A bus passenger was injured and the driver of a car was ticketed after the vehicle made a U-turn that caused an accident.
The incident about 2:20 p.m. on Monday afternoon occurred on Glacier Avenue near Ross Way. The Subaru Forester attempted a U-turn in front of the Capital Transit bus, but — according to a statement from the Juneau Police Department — could not turn completely and backed up into the path of the bus which essentially broadsided the vehicle or ‘T-boned’ it.
There was $3,000 damage to the Subaru and $1,000 damage to bus.
Timothy Young, 32, of Anchorage was issued a citation for negligent driving.
An unidentified passenger on the bus was transprorted to Bartlett Regional Hospital for treatment of non-life threatening injuries.
