In a single-vehicle accident, three pedestrians, a mom, and two children sustained injuries. They are in stable condition at this point according to Juneau Police Department Lt Krag Campbell.

The letter, sent by principal Eric Filardi, stated that all guardians involved have been contacted and that the safety of their students is of top priority.
