Cars collide near vacant J-Bar-B

Two large vehicles collided early Tuesday morning when a driver attempted to pass a school bus and ran into oncoming traffic, said Megan Peters, Alaska State Troopers spokesperson.

The accident occurred at 6:45 a.m. near the vacant saloon J-Bar-B on the Sterling Highway and resulted in minor injuries. Both vehicles had a driver with no passengers, and one of the drivers was transported to Central Peninsula Hospital but was released shortly thereafter, said Brad Nelson, Central Emergency Services responder.

A truck and SUV collided head-on near the driver sides of the vehicles. It was not a high-speed collision, as traffic had slowed for the school bus, according to authorities.

CES responded to the scene and Troopers handled the stoppage of traffic, which lasted for about 30 minutes. Both vehicles were towed away.
