Suquamish woman ejected from car in Dec. 8 accident

POULSBO — A 34-year-old Suquamish resident was ejected from the 2005 Chevrolet Aveo she was driving after it was struck by a 1993 Chevrolet Cavalier at about 5:30 a.m. Dec. 8 at the intersection of Johnson Way and State Route 305, according to the Washington State Patrol. She was not wearing her seatbelt at the time, and was airlifted to Harborview Medical Center.

The Suquamish resident had been on Johnson Way and turned onto SR 305 from the east, and was struck by the Cavalier, which was traveling southbound. Troopers said she had failed to yield the right of way. A 32-year-old Keyport resident who was a passenger in the car was taken to Harrison Medical Center in Bremerton, as was the 53-year-old Bremerton driver of the Cavalier.

Both were wearing their seatbelts. Neither drugs nor alcohol are believed to be factors in the accident, troopers said.

Thirteen-year-old arrested for driving stolen Dodge truck

SUQUAMISH — A 13-year-old Suquamish resident was arrested after Suquamish Police pursued a truck he was driving, one reported stolen, at about 2:40 a.m. Dec. 5 on Brockton Avenue in Suquamish, according to the Kitsap County Sheriff’s Office.

Suquamish Police deputies attempted to pull over the tan 2002 Dodge truck, but the teenager continued driving until he got the vehicle stuck in a yard and rammed other vehicles in front of the residence trying to get away. Deputies took 13-year-old into custody.

He said his friend, a 16-year-old Suquamish resident, called him and asked if he wanted to hang out. The younger teen agreed, and they drove for a little while in the truck, which the 16-year-old said was his cousin’s.

He offered to let the 13-year-old drive, who agreed to that. At that point, the police arrived on scene, and the younger teenager said his friend left out the passenger door.

The 13-year-old was taken into custody and booked at juvenile detention for possession of stolen property and eluding a pursuing police vehicle.

Deputies said they are still investigating this stolen vehicle and several other vehicle prowls in the area. Anyone with information is asked to call KCSO at (360) 337-7101.
