A single-vehicle rollover crash with minor injuries on Providence Drive temporarily closed its westbound lanes Saturday afternoon near the University of Alaska Anchorage, according to local police.

APD spokesperson Dani Myren says police received an initial report about the crash, at Providence’s intersection with Spirit Drive, just after 4:30 p.m. One female patient was taken from the vehicle for treatment.

"The driver was transported to the hospital with what appear to be minor injuries," Myren said.

Word wasn't immediately available on the cause of the crash Saturday night.

"As far as the accident itself, that's still under investigation by officers," Myren said.

APD reported on Twitter that Providence's westbound lanes were reopened as of about 5:40 p.m.
