Three injured in two-vehicle collision

Father, mother, 3-year-old treated for minor injuries

SILVERDALE — Three people were injured Sept. 9 in a two-vehicle collision that resulted in a woman being charged with negligent driving.

Just before 3 p.m., a 2009 Ford F-150 being driven by a 24-year-old woman from Poulsbo was traveling east on Bucklin Hill Road between Central Valley Road and Silver Creek Lane. According to a witness, the woman was driving erratically, said Deputy Scott Wilson of the Kitsap County Sheriff’s Office.

The driver initially veered off the road toward the shoulder, but overcorrected and crossed over the centerline into oncoming traffic. The F-150 struck a 2008 Ford SUV with four people inside.

The driver of the SUV — a 23-year-old man from Bremerton — his wife, and their 3-year-old daughter were transported to Harrison Medical Center in Bremerton, where they were treated for minor injuries. The fourth occupant, a 3-week-old baby, was not hurt.

Authorities evaluated the woman driving the truck and found she was not impaired. However, the woman surmised that she may have fallen asleep at the wheel, Wilson said, as she was “very tired.”

Both vehicles were totaled and hauled away, with the scene cleared at approximately 4:30 p.m.

The woman was issued a notice for second-degree negligent driving.
