UPDATE | Deceased in Illahee fatal crash identified

EAST BREMERTON — Authorities in Kitsap County after investigating a second fatal car crash in less than 24 hours after a Thursday morning solo accident on Illahee Road NE.

A preliminary investigtation showed that a passenger vehicle traveling northbound on Illahee Road NE just south of Rue Villa Street NE at 8:11 a.m. when the driver, Miya Reynolds, 23, a resident of Bremerton, lost control of the 1987 Nissan Maxima, said Deputy Scott Wilson of the Kitsap County Sheriff’s Office in a press release. The driver then overcorrected, causing the car to rotate, and the vehicle’s momentum caused the car to skid sideways over the shoulder and into a tree, Wilson said. The driver’s door was the point of impact.

The driver was pronounced deceased at the scene.

Following an autopsy, the Kitsap County coroner stated that the cause of death was multiple blunt force trauma injuries. The manner of death is listed as accidental due to motor vehicle collision. Toxicology test results are pending.

Traffic officers are looking for witnesses to the accident who have not yet been interviewed. Anyone with information about the crash is asked to contact Deputy Darren Andersson of the sheriff’s traffic unit at 360-337-4634.
