POULSBO — A tree collapsed onto a car that went off the roadway and into the tree June 11.

The crash occurred at 1:30 p.m. on Totten Road near Widme Road. A 20-year-old Suquamish woman was driving.

After the car crashed into the tree, the woman was able to crawl out of the car. She then waited nearby for emergency crews to arrive.

While she was waiting, witnesses began screaming for her to move, as the tree began to fall toward her. She ran, but was knocked down by the falling tree.

The woman suffered non-life-threatening injuries. She was taken to Harrison Medical Center in Bremerton for treatment.

The cause of the crash was not determined by press time. The Suquamish Police Department is investigating.
