16-year-old driver crashes into AML truck on Egan Drive

A 16-year-old driver had minor injuries after running into an Alaska Marine Lines truck this morning on Egan Drive.

“A Dodge Neon was heading inbound, and the vehicle reportedly hydroplaned on some water and ended up striking the vehicle next to it,” said Juneau police Lt. David Campbell. “The vehicle next to it happened to be an AML truck.”

The accident occurred at about 7:30 a.m. and shutdown one lane of inbound traffic near Wal-Mart for about an hour, Campbell said.

Police did not name the driver because she’s a minor. She was cited for careless driving.
