Hansville crash claims life of driver

A fatal single-vehicle collision along Hansville Road NE has closed traffic in both directions south of NE 288th Street up to State Route 104.

Around 1:30 p.m. Kitsap County Sheriff’s Deputies were working to clear the scene. Deputies said it appears that the truck left the roadway, striking a tree head-on near the NE 288th Street intersection. The collision claimed the life of the driver, who was the sole occupant.

Both lanes of traffic south of 288th Street were closed and northbound drivers were told to detour through the Gamblewood neighborhood up to 288th Street.

Deputies said they expected to have the scene cleared and traffic moving again shortly before 2 p.m.

Deputies are asking for witnesses or anyone with information on the crash to contact Deputy Rob Corn at 360-337-4634.
