Three-Car Collision

FAIRBANKS- With fresh snow on the ground, roads were more slippery today. The intersection of University Avenue and the Mitchell Expressway looked like bumper cars, this morning, with a 3- car collision. Nobody was seriously injured, but the driver of the green Saturn was extricated from her vehicle by University Fire Department and taken to the hospital. The driver of the green truck failed to yield while making a left turn when the car collided with it. The truck slid into another car waiting at the red light. Alaska State Trooper Michael Wery says, drivers can reduce their risks if they plan extra time to get to their destination and drive slow.
