One injured, one arrested in two rollover accidents Sept. 12

BREMERTON — Two rollover accidents occurred within hours of each other in the Central Kitsap area Sept. 12, resulting in one trip to the hospital and one arrest.

The first collision happened at 8:59 a.m. on State Route 3, according to Washington State Patrol Public Information Officer Russel Winger.

According to Winger, “A military transport truck … traveling southbound inside lane, changed lanes to the right and struck a 1977 Porsche traveling in the outside lane. The Porsche spun into the center concrete barrier then rolled, landing upside down.”

The driver of the Porsche was transported to Harrison Hospital with some lacerations; he was wearing a seatbelt at the time. Winger said the cause of the collision was “improper lane change for the truck driver.”

This resulted in the road being slightly blocked for more than an hour, “with traffic getting by in one lane after the first half hour.”

At 1:08 p.m. another rollover accident occurred on westbound State Route 16 entering Gorst, near the Mattress Ranch store.

“The second collision involved a reported erratic driven vehicle described as traveling at a high rate that rolled,” Winger said. “Lanes were blocked briefly.”

The driver of the 2008 Mitsubishi involved was arrested for DUI and transported to the Kitsap Jail for processing after being checked for injuries and released to the custody of Washington State Patrol troopers, Winger said.
