Suspect vehicle’s driver flees scene of accident

PORT ORCHARD — A speeding vehicle believed to be a black Camaro reportedly caused a two-vehicle rollover collision on Highway 16 near Burley Olalla Road Dec. 20, injuring three people, according to a report from Washington State Patrol.

The auto incident at 10:23 p.m. involved a 2005 Toyota Camry and a 2003 Dodge truck, which was changing lanes when the suspect vehicle, traveling at high speed, struck the rear of the truck. That collision sent the Dodge into the ditch, where it rolled over onto the driver’s side. The Camry, also struck by a vehicle, was sent into the ditch.

The driver of the Dodge was injured and taken to St. Joseph Hospital. The driver of the Camry, a 58-year-old man, was reportedly injured by refused medical treatment. His two passengers included a 55-year-old woman, who was not injured, and a 76-year-old woman not wearing a seat belt. She was injured and taken to St. Joseph for treatment.

The driver of the suspect vehicle reportedly left the scene of the accident without stopping.

The Washington State Patrol is investigating the incident.
