One dead, one injured in highway collision

Drivers of two vehicles were taken to area hospitals Monday following a collision at the intersection of Pioneer Hill Road and Highway 3.

A State Patrol report said a 2003 Honda Odyssey headed east on Pioneer Hill Road and entered the intersection onto Highway 3 in front of a 2001 Ford F250. The Ford was headed northbound when it collided with the vehicle on its passenger side.

The driver of the Honda, Hamad Alotbi, 23, of Poulsbo, was transported to St. Joseph hospital in Tacoma with serious injuries. The driver of the Ford, April Griffths, 26, of Belfair, was taken to a Kitsap hospital with minor injuries.

Washington State Patrol learned Wednesday morning that Alotbi had succumbed to his injuries from the accident.

The accident closed part of the northbound lane of Highway 3 for about an hour while the incident was being investigated.
