Slick, icy roads may have been to blame for a single car rollover at mile 1.5 of Nash Road a little after 6 p.m. Friday evening. Three people were inside the vehicle when it flipped over. The driver, a male, was standing outside when help arrived. An infant and female were inside, and the woman was trapped. The Bear Creek Volunteer Fire Department had to pull back the roof to extricate the woman. The family was taken to Seward Providence Hospital by ambulance. The woman was in stable condition, and a good outcome was expected, said BCVFD Chief Mark Beals. The other two were unhurt. The City Public Works Department brought over a sand truck to sand the road while the extrication was in process.
Local authorities also were called out to respond to another single car rollover with minor injuries at mile 11 of Seward Highway at 8:53 p.m. Sunday. Three people were in that rollover. Injuries described in the Seward Police Journal included a possible broken finger, and lacerations to a head and elbow. A private vehicle drove those injured to the Seward Providence Hospital, and the ambulance and fire department aid was cancelled.
There was also a chimney fire in Seward, several drunken bar fights and DUI-related calls. Two intoxicated men reported staggering down Fourth Avenue were arrested early Sunday morning after the bars closed at midnight Saturday, and cited for Criminal Mischief after breaking a window of The SeaBean, a popular downtown Seward coffee shop.
