Summary: On 04-17-14, at about 3:57PM, the Juneau Police Department received a report of a motor vehicle collision in the area of the outbound lane of Egan Drive and Glacier Highway, at the hospital drive intersection.

Members of the Juneau Police Department and Capital City Fire and Rescue responded to the area.

The investigation showed that the driver of a white 1998 Toyota Corolla, driven by twenty four year old Marina Ogai, was driving outbound on Egan Drive, and was approaching the hospital intersection on Glacier Highway, when she failed to stop at a steady red light. The Toyota Corolla went through the intersection and struck a black 2001 Jeep, which was entering the intersection from Glacier Highway. The Jeep was being driven by fifty eight year old Rudy Isturis.

No injuries were reported at the scene, but Rudy Isturis later went the Bartlett Regional Hospital for a medical evaluation. Both vehicles sustained significant damages and are believed to be totaled.

The outbound lane of Egan Drive was closed down for about twenty minutes, and traffic was diverted down Glacier Highway.

Marina Ogai was cited for failing to stop at a steady red light, and failing to show proof of insurance.
