Port Orchard woman dies in Sedgwick collision

A Port Orchard man injured and sent to hospital

PORT ORCHARD — A Port Orchard woman attempting to stop traffic on State Route 160-Sedgwick Road was hit and killed Friday night as a result of a three-vehicle collision near the intersection of Bodle Road Southeast.

Daria Klos, 56, was taken to Tacoma General Hospital, where she was pronounced deceased. Washington State Patrol troopers have not determined why the woman was attempting to stop traffic.

Circumstances leading up to the collision are being investigated by WSP, the agency reported in a news release. In its accident report, WSP troopers stated that the driver of a 2006 Toyota 4Runner had stopped in the eastbound lane of Sedgwick and was in the middle of the road attempting to stop traffic.

The woman was then struck by her own vehicle after it was hit by an eastbound 2009 Hyundai Elantra and pushed into her way, throwing her clear of the roadway. The Elantra subsequently spun across the westbound lane of traffic, where it struck the front of a 2009 Ford Taurus.

The driver of the Elantra, a 74-year-old Port Orchard man, was transported to Tacoma General Hospital with injuries. The 29-year-old Tacoma man driving the Taurus was not injured, according to the WSP report.

The agency reported none of the drivers were under the influence of drugs or alcohol.
