LITTLE BOSTON — A man killed in an early Tuesday morning motor vehicle collision has been identified as Joseph Domingo Careaga, the son of John Careaga, who was found dead in his truck in a Mason County tree farm after three family members were found murdered in their Seabeck home.

Kitsap County Sheriff’s Deputy Scott Wilson said, “All evidence points to a horrible motor vehicle collision,” and that the Kitsap County Sheriff’s Office did not suspect foul play. The Kitsap County Coroner has classified the manner of death as accidental due to motor vehicle collision.

The collision occurred at 12:51 a.m. when a 2007 Audi driven by an 18-year-old female from Silverdale, traveling southbound on Hansville Road at a high rate of speed struck a northbound 2005 Subaru Outback as it was attempting to make a left-hand turn onto Little Boston Road.

The female driving the Audi was able to exit the vehicle and was transported to Harrison Medical Center in Bremerton. She later was transported to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle in critical condition.

The driver of the Outback, a 38-year-old male from Bremerton, also was taken to Harborview, where their condition was reported to be critical. He had been entrapped and was extracted by North Kitsap Fire and Rescue emergency crews.

Wilson said the Audi was fully engulfed in flames when crews from North Kitsap Fire and Rescue arrived at the scene. Both lanes of Hansville Road were closed for most of the morning.

Persons with information about this collision are asked to contact Deputy Andy Aman or Deputy Aimee Rogers, sheriff’s traffic unit, at 360-337-4634.
