Juneau Police are still investigating a collision between a car and a motorcycle that occurred Monday evening in Douglas.
The two people reported injured included the operator of the Harley Davidson, 52-year old Randall Ford and his 51-year old unidentified female passenger. They were taken to Bartlett Regional Hospital for treatment of non-life threatening injuries.
Officers say it appears that accident occurred when the driver of a 2001 Saab identified 52-year old Kim Mungle was heading down 3rd Street in Douglas and attempted to turn left on D Street.
Alcohol is not believed to be a factor in the case.
