Q. On 7-12-2011 it says there was a DWI crash at 21:54 and to see news release but there is no news release.
Dear Juneau Resident,
JPD actually did not do a press release on that case, which is still under investigation, and apologizes for any confusion. Two vehicles, being driven by people who knew each other, both went into the ditch on Back Loop Road though they did not collide with each other. One driver was transported by ambulance with non-life threatening injuries. JPD served search warrants on both drivers to collect blood as part of a double DWI investigation. There were no passengers in either vehicle. This investigation developed through the night and is still being worked so there was a decision not to do a full press release.
