Child struck by truck in Manette

The accident took place on E. 11th Street at Perry Avenue; impairment is not believed to be a factor

MANETTE — A young child is in stable condition after being hit late Saturday night by a truck at the intersection of East 11th Street and Perry Avenue.

At 7:47 p.m. on July 14, Bremerton police received a call about a car vs. pedestrian collision at the intersection in Manette and that a large group of people who was irate with the driver involved. A number of officers responded to the scene, said Lt. Randy Plumb of the Bremerton Police Department.

Officers spoke to the driver of the car and several witnesses, including two people who knew the driver and were riding in a separate vehicle behind the Nissan Titan truck involved in the accident.

Witnesses indicated they saw the child run out in front of the car from the northern sidewalk of East 11th Street as the truck traveled westbound, Plumb said. The driver of the truck was able to slam on the brakes in reaction to seeing the child in the street.

The child was conscious and was airlifted to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle. Plumb said the child is in stable condition with no crushing injuries.

Impairment is not believed to be a factor in the crash. Plumb said the driver was cooperative and submitted to a field sobriety test as well as a voluntary blood draw.

“[The results] will take some time, but there was no indication at the time the driver was impaired,” Plumb said.
