SUQUAMISH — A driver was killed on Suquamish Way Saturday evening after the driver's SUV was struck by a boat and trailer that separated from a truck in the oncoming lane.

The driver's identity is being withheld until next of kin are notified, Kitsap County Sheriff's Deputy Scott Wilson said.

The collision happened shortly after 6 p.m. near the intersection of Totten Road and Suquamish Way. Wilson said a Ford truck towing a fishing boat was traveling south on Suquamish Way when the trailer separated from the truck. The boat and trailer swerved into the northbound lane and struck a Jeep SUV, killing its driver.

No other injuries were reported, Wilson said.

The Sheriff's office is investigating the cause of the crash. Suquamish Way was closed temporarily.

More details will be posted as they become available.
