Troopers reported two vehicle accidents from last week.
According to the online Alaska State Troopers dispatch, the first was at about 6:45 p.m. Thursday near Mile 11 North Tongass Highway. A 51-year-old woman was northbound when she lost control of her vehicle and slid off the road.
According to Troopers, the woman suffered minor injuries and was taken to PeaceHealth Ketchikan Medical Center by the North Tongass Volunteer Fire Department.
The woman reported wearing a seatbelt. Troopers say she did not have a valid driver’s license and was driving without proof of insurance. She received citations for those violations.
There were no injuries from the second car accident, which happened a little before 8:30 p.m. Friday near Mile 13 North Tongass Highway.
Troopers say the 24-year-old woman lost control of her vehicle while driving south. She was the only occupant, and was wearing her seatbelt when her car went off the road and landed upside down.
Winter weather often results in slippery road conditions. There’s been snow and ice in recent days.
