KETCHIKAN, Alaska (AP) — Alaska State Troopers say a license plate that dropped off a vehicle that struck a Tongass Highway guardrail led to the driver, who did not report the incident.

Troopers say 33-year-old Scott Kenyon of Ketchikan was cited for negligent driving and issued a summons to appear in court for leaving the scene of an accident.

Troopers say they were notified Monday evening of damage to a guardrail near mile 12 of the highway.

According to troopers, a vehicle bumper and attached license plate were found at the scene of the damage.

Troopers say Kenyon had been driving a 2003 Isuzu around 2 a.m. when he lost control of the vehicle and struck the guardrail.

Damage to his vehicle is estimated at $5,000.

No injuries have been reported in the incident.
