Teen dies after Clear Creek Road collision

King County Medical Examiner’s Office identified the female as Neveah Nicole Hawkins of Silverdale

An 18-year-old female was pronounced dead by Harborview medical staff in Seattle early Saturday morning, following a vehicle collision Friday at the intersection of Clear Creek Road NW and NW Closser Drive in North Kitsap.

The King County Medical Examiner’s Office has identified the driver as Neveah Nicole Hawkins from Silverdale.

According to a release from the Kitsap County Sheriff’s Office, a preliminary report indicates the driver of a Toyota Tacoma pickup truck was traveling northbound on Clear Creek Road NW approaching the intersection with NW Closser Drive when the driver of a Chevrolet Malibu, Hawkins, attempted a left turn from Closser Drive to travel southbound on Clear Creek Road.

The Chevrolet then allegedly turned into the path of the oncoming Toyota truck before being struck on the driver’s side of the vehicle, the release states.

The passenger of the Chevrolet Malibu, a 20-year-old Poulsbo male, was airlifted to Harborview Medical Center with serious injuries and is now reported to be in stable condition, according to KCSO. The driver of the Toyota, a 51-year-old male from Central Kitsap, did not sustain any serious injuries.

According to KCSO, neither intoxicants nor excessive vehicle speed were factors in the cause of the collision. Clear Creek Road was closed to thru traffic for approximately four hours while sheriff’s traffic and patrol deputies conducted the collision investigation.
