Dispatch Text:

On 1/4/19 at approximately 1401 hours, Soldotna AST recieved a report of an motor vehicle collision (MVC) on Boundary Street off of MP 91 of the Sterling Highway in Soldotna. The caller reported there was lane blockage but no injuries. AST responded and located the MVC on Ken May Avenue. I identified the at fault driver as Jaime Ruzewski, age 28 of Soldotna, driving a 2001 white Toyota Rav4. I identified the other driver as Bryan Hutchins, age 38 of Nikiski, driving a white 1997 kenworth propane truck. Investigation revealed Ruzewski was traveling southbound when she began to slide towards Hutchins' vehicle. Ruzewski advised she accidentally hit the accelerator, sliding on the ice, and striking Hutchins' vehicle, causing disabling damage to both vehicles. Both vehicles were towed from the scene by Jenwar. Alcohol was not a factor and neither party was cited.
