Three adults and a 2-year-old child received minor injuries following a three-vehicle accident Saturday morning on South Point Higgins Road.
According to Alaska State Troopers’ online dispatch, troopers and North Tongass Fire Department crews responded to the accident at about 10:45 a.m. Troopers report that a 19-year-old man had been driving east on South Point Higgins when he looked away from the road.
His car struck another vehicle that was parked along the roadway. The owner of the parked vehicle had been placing her 2-year-old child into a car seat at the time.
The impact caused the parked car to move forward and strike another parked, unoccupied vehicle.
According to Troopers, the driver, his passenger, the woman and the child all complained of minor injuries and were evaluated by EMS on scene. They all refused further treatment.
The 19-year-old driver was cited for negligent driving.
