PORT ORCHARD — A woman died Thursday afternoon when her Toyota Camry vehicle reportedly crossed the centerline and struck a Ford truck head-on on Southeast Burley Olalla Road in Olalla.
The woman, Karen Margaret Fleck, 57, of South Kitsap, was pronounced dead at the scene of the accident, which was reported to 911 at 4:25 p.m. Her 2011 Camry passenger car was reported by traffic investigators from Kitsap County Sheriff’s Office to have been driven westbound near the 5100 block of Southeast Burley Olalla Road, between Shady Glen Avenue Southeast and Fagerud Road Southeast, when the collision took place in the eastbound lane after striking the Ford F-350 truck being driven eastbound.
Investigators are examining the possibility that the woman had been impaired by alcoholic intoxicants, sheriff’s deputies reported Thursday night. An autopsy has been scheduled for July 1. After it is completed, the coroner’s office will issue a determination as to the cause and manner of Fleck’s death.
The driver of the Ford truck, a 41-year-old man from Olalla, was reported to have escaped without injuries. His passenger, a 6-year-old girl, was taken by family members to St. Anthony Hospital in Gig Harbor and was reported to have no apparent injuries.
Engine and medic units from South Kitsap Fire and Rescue also responded to the accident scene.
