Cycle Spills at Improved Intersection

Roger Fish, left, checks out his motorcycle Monday after skidding out in front of resident Lemmie Spradlin, whose car is pictured. Spradlin was cited for making an unsafe turn from Second Avenue onto Young Road. Fish, a visitor from Tennessee, was just starting a motorcycle tour of Alaska with friends after debarking the ferry. Police chief Gary Lowe, at right in photo, has said he believes recent safety improvement to the intersection and a few others, changing them from “Y”-shaped to a “T,” has made them more dangerous.
