The driver of the vehicle lost control of the vehicle and hit the guard rail on the way to Soldotna from Kenai, according to Kenai Police investigator Ben Langham. Multiple bystanders came up to help keep the truck from completely flipping over between when the accident occurred and when the police responded, he said.
Soldotna towing was removing the vehicle from the road.
A motor vehicle rollover briefly shut down the Kenai Spur Highway Tuesday afternoon.
The Kenai Police Department and the Kenai Fire Department responded to an overturned grey Nissan truck around Mile 8 of the highway at approximately 4:40 p.m. Tuesday. The car was turned on its left side in the southbound lane of the highway.
The Kenai police were redirecting traffic away from the location of the car, which was located between Beaver Loop Road and Gator Guns on the highway, according to Sergeant Jay Sjogren.
The injured driver, one female, was taken from the scene in a Kenai Fire Department ambulance around 5 p.m., according to firefighter Scott Summers. The ambulance departed the scene and took her to Central Peninsula Hospital in Soldotna, he said.
As soon as the ambulance departed, the police were able to reopen one lane to traffic, Sjogren said. One lane remained open and traffic was moving slowly as of 5:19 p.m.
