The collision happened just after 2 p.m. Wednesday between their dirt bike and an orange Subaru Crosstrek, Fairbanks police said. The driver of the Subaru reported looking both directions after coming up on a stop sign on 21st Avenue, but when she pulled out onto Cowles Street, she collided with the dirt bike.


The driver of the Subaru was uninjured, but the pair on the dirt bike were taken to Fairbanks Memorial Hospital. The driver of the dirt bike, Nelson, sustained a leg injury during the crash. His passenger, Nollner-Albert suffered “serious incapacitating injuries,” according to police. Neither of them was wearing a helmet at the time of the crash and were both thrown from the bike.


While police investigate the crash, the intersection of 21st Avenue and Cowles Street remains closed.
