One Injured in Truck/ATV Accident in Nikiski Last Night

Last night, just after 7:20pm, the Alaska State Troopers responded to a motor vehicle accident involving a 4-wheeler and a motor vehicle on Milky Way St and Litmitz Ave in Nikiski.

Subsequent Investigation revealed that a 2000 GMC Sonoma truck, driven by 20-year-old Jewel Meader of Nikiski, collided with a Suzuki Quadrunner 4-wheeler driven by a 13-year-old Nikiski female with another juvenile female on the ATV.

The Sonoma received minor damage as did the 4-wheeler.  Meader was not injured while the driver of the 4-wheeler was transported to CPH with minor injuries and the passenger of the 4-wheeler was flown to Anchorage for treatment of non-life threatening injuries.

All vehicles were driven from the scene.  Meader was seatbelted and both occupants of the 4-wheeler were wearing helmets.

Ms. Meader was issued a summons for operating a motor vehicle in violation of an instructor’s permit.  Investigation is continuing.
