Police: One dead after crash on Illahee Rd. in East Bremerton

A man died in a traffic collision on Illahee Rd. NE Monday morning, the Kitsap County Sheriff’s Office reported.

Reports of a crash on the 7600 block of Illahee Rd. in East Bremerton came in around 6:02 a.m., Deputy Scott Wilson said.

The driver of a four-door sedan was killed after his vehicle collided with a Chevrolet Silverado pickup truck. The driver of the truck and his 3-year-old son were not injured. All three people involved were wearing seatbelts, police said.

The name of the deceased has not been released.

Wilson said slick and icy roads contributed to the accident.

He said the passenger car slid on the ice, turned sideways and crossed the center line of the two-lane road. The driver of the truck hit the brakes and locked wheels before the vehicles collided.

Central Kitsap Fire and Rescue pronounced the driver of the car dead at the scene. There were no passengers.

The Silverado’s driver, a 27-year-old male, has been cooperating fully with police, Wilson said. There were no signs of impairment. A review of data contained in the truck’s airbag module is underway.
