Minor injuries sustained in one-car accident

A 47-year-old Poulsbo woman sustained minor injuries Saturday evening after rolling her Honda SUV upside down into a ditch along SR 104, two miles south of Port Gamble.

North Kitsap Fire and Rescue and Washington State Patrol responded to the accident. The woman was taken to Harrison Medical Center, where she was treated and released the same evening. The highway closed to a single lane for about 30 minutes after the accident was cleared.

Man flees from accident

A man driving a Chrysler reportedly fled the scene with a female passenger after T-boning a woman driving a Honda at a crossway of Caldart and Hostmark 1 p.m. Saturday.

Police reports indicate the woman driving the Honda was about 20 years old. She received only minor injuries even though her driver-side door was pushed in 10-12 inches. She was taken to Harrison Medical Center, where she was treated and released.

Twins airlifted to Harborview

Seconds before a Port Gamble woman collided with a utility pole, a police officer clocked the woman speeding at 66 mph on a 40 mph road. The officer turned his vehicle around to pursue the woman, who was driving a 1988 Ford Thunderbird. The woman lost control while rounding a 90-degree corner, where the speed limit is reduced to 25 mph. The Thunderbird struck a pole and stopped in a ditch. A set of 18-month-old twins who were passengers in the vehicle were airlifted to Harborview Medical Center to receive medical treatment.

Deputy Scott Wilson of the Kitsap County Sheriff’s Office said a sample of her blood was taken at the scene to determine if alcohol or drugs factored into the accident.

The accident occurred at about 5 p.m. on Little Boston Road. Because of the twins’ age and the speed involved with the accident, police thought it best to airlift the children. Both the driver and a 28-year-old male passenger sustained minor injuries.

The Kitsap County Sheriff’s Department will continue to investigate the accident.
