DUI at Sedgwick on SR 16 causes two-car accident

Driver at fault taken to Tacoma General with injuries

PORT ORCHARD — A vehicle driven by a Poulsbo man heading westbound on SR 16 just west of Sedgwick Road Saturday night left the road, crossed over the median and collided with a vehicle heading eastbound.

The westbound 1988 Volvo 240, driven by a 62-year-old man, caused the second vehicle, a 2005 Honda Element, to lose its front left wheel. The Element continued for about a quarter-mile before coming to a rest, where it was then struck by a 2010 Honda Civic, which blew out its front and rear left tires.

The driver of the Volvo was arrested for driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs. He was transported to Tacoma General Hospital with injuries.

The driver of the Honda Element, a 69-year-old Newcastle man, was taken to Tacoma General Hospital by medics as a precautionary measure. The driver of the Honda Civic, a 37-year-old Port Orchard man, was not injured, according to the Washington State Patrol.

Traffic was impacted eastbound on SR 16 for about an hour and 45 minutes by the accident and subsequent investigation by WSP troopers.
