Three injured in Bremerton car crash

Driver who allegedly caused the crash remains at large

BREMERTON — The driver of a vehicle alleged to have caused a three-car crash that injured three people on July 30 remains at large, authorities said.

At approximately 10:07 p.m. on July 30, a 1997 Chevrolet Cavalier was traveling at a high rate of speed on Highway 3 northbound near Barney White Road in Bremerton, according to Washington State Patrol. The Cavalier used the shoulder and part of the right lane to pass another vehicle, a 2007 Saturn SUV, side-swiping it in the process. The Saturn lost control and crossed the center line, where it struck a third vehicle, a 2000 Jaguar, head-on.

The roadway was blocked off well into the early morning hours.

State Patrol troopers are searching for the driver of the Cavalier, who fled the scene on foot and remains at large as of morning July 31.

“[Detectives] are following up on those leads, but they have not located any suspects at this point,” Washington State Patrol Trooper Russ Winger said.

The driver of the Jaguar, Angela M. Schenkel, 34, of Bremerton, was airlifted to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle. Winger said Schenkel sustained the most serious injuries of the three.

The Jaguar’s passenger, Craig A. Burdick, 39, of Belfair, was transported to Tacoma General Hospital with injuries Winger described as serious, but non-life threatening.

Matthew R. Fink, 36, of Edgewood, was identified as the driver of the Saturn. He was transported by aid to Harrison Medical Center in Bremerton before being transported to Harborview.

All three vehicles were totaled and impounded to the Washington State Patrol Bremerton bullpen.

Anyone with information about this crash should contact Detective Michael Welander of Washington State Patrol at 360-473-0300.
