LITTLE BOSTON — A motorist was killed and two others critically injured in a two-car accident early Tuesday morning, June 19, that closed both lanes of Hansville Highway at Little Boston Road.

The accident occurred at 12:51 a.m. when a 2007 Audi traveling southbound on Hansville Road at a high rate of speed struck a northbound 2005 Subaru Outback that was attempting to make a left-hand turn onto Little Boston Road. Deputy Scott Wilson of the Kitsap County Sheriff’s Office said the Audi was fully engulfed in flames when crews from North Kitsap Fire and Rescue arrived at the scene.

The female driver of the Audi, an 18-year-old from Silverdale, was able to exit the vehicle, was transported to Harrison Medical Center in Bremerton. She later was transported to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle in critical condition. A male passenger in the Audi was declared deceased at the scene. 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. The Kitsap County Coroner’s Office is still working to confirm the identity of the deceased, Wilson said.

Both lanes of Hansville Highway were closed for most of the morning. The names of the victims are being withheld pending notification of next of kin.

This story will be updated as more information becomes available.
