Four car pileup closes SR 305

POULSBO — State Route 305 near Seminole Road was closed for a little more than an hour starting at about 7:50 a.m., reopening at about 9 a.m., Wednesday after a 1989 Nissan four-door failed to yield to oncoming traffic, creating a four-car accident, according to the Washington State Patrol.

The driver, a 19-year-old Poulsbo resident, was turning from Seminole Road to southbound on SR 305, failing to yield to a 1988 Toyota four-door, driven by a 16-year-old Poulsbo resident, heading northbound on the highway.

Troopers said the second vehicle then hit a 2005 Mazda four-door and a 1995 Honda Passport, blocking the road. The drivers of the Toyota and Mazda sustained minor injuries in the accident, the 16-year-old suffering minor head injuries and the 20-year-old Bremerton resident receiving a minor foot injury.

Troopers said the WSP is investigating the accident.

Car crash becomes

hit-and-run crime

SUQUAMISH — A 52-year-old North End resident contacted 911 after his 1969 Chevrolet Suburban was hit by a red 2004 Toyota pickup, and the other driver left the scene of the accident, at about 6:40 p.m. Oct. 21 at the intersection of Columbia Street and Brockton Avenue in Suquamish, according to the Kitsap County Sheriff’s Office.

The Suburban driver said he was driving westbound on Columbia Street when the other motorist made a left turn from the stop sign at Brockton Avenue and ran into his vehicle. The pickup driver got out of his truck, looked at the Suburban and said “Looks like there’s hardly any damage.”

The 52-year-old asked to exchange license and insurance information, and the other driver agreed, saying he would move his truck to the side of the road. Deputies said at that point, the man drove away.

Deputies contacted him at this residence on Ammon Lane in Poulsbo, and the man said the 52-year-old didn’t wish to report the accident. Deputies said this seemed unlikely since the other driver called 911 and waited at the scene until they arrived. The Poulsbo resident was cited for failing to yield from a stop sign, and the 52-year-old said he wished to pursue hit-and-run charges.
