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.

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.
