Just before 5 this morning, a white Nissan van struck a truck at the intersection of Egan Drive and Loop Road.
Two children, an 8-year-old boy and 9-year-old girl, as well as the driver of the truck, a 62 year-old North Pole resident, were taken to Bartlett Regional Hospital for treatment of injuries. No one was seriously injured, according to a press release from the Juneau Police Department.
The police department says the van was on Loop Road traveling in the direction of the glacier. The driver failed to stop at a red light and hit a black 2010 Chevy truck that was traveling towards Auke Bay.
Heather Gross, 36, of Sitka, is identified as the driver of the van. Gross was cited for failure to stop at a red light.
