FAIRBANKS- One person was injured in an auto accident this afternoon. The victim was reportedly driving a van which collided with a car at the intersection of Van Horn and Peger Road. A witness to the accident believed the van was smoking and moved the injured person into the bed of his truck; but police on scene say it was most likely dust in the air from the collision. An ambulance transported the injured person to Fairbanks Memorial Hospital with possible injuries to the neck and wrists. The van belonged to Arctic Fire & Safety and Lieutenant Dan Welborn says it appears the driver ignored a stop sign.
