A five-vehicle wreck that sent three people to the hospital Wednesday evening was the result of a vehicle driving the wrong way — against traffic — on Egan Drive, police say. The cause of the crash is still under investigation, Juneau Police Department said in a Thursday afternoon news release. Neither charges nor the identities of the drivers involved in the wreck were announced. According to police, around 4:20 p.m. a maroon Acura driven by a 49-year-old man drove in the opposite direction of traffic resulting in a five-car wreck on Egan Drive near the old Walmart building, including a head-on collision between the Acura and a white Subaru. Witnesses told police the Acura was first seen driving in the inbound turn lane of Egan Drive before making a left turn toward Fred Meyer, however, the vehicle instead entered into the outbound lane of Egan Drive, according to JPD. This led to the head-on collision and multivehicle wreck.
