Car crashes into construction pit on Winslow Way
Police responded to a car accident at Winslow Way and Ericksen Avenue at 11:20 a.m. Friday.
A man driving a blue Honda Civic was making a left-hand turn onto Winslow Way from the Town & Country Market's front parking lot when he drove off the road into an open construction pit. The car also collided and broke off a raised cement curb meant to block drivers from entering the pit, which eventually will have a planting placed in it.
"He just came out, tried to make a left-hand turn and dumped it in," said a man who observed the accident from the Virginia Mason Medical Clinic across the street.
"Anybody could have done this," he said. "It was bound to happen. It's just a single cone, not great visibility and a big hole."
The right side of the exit was lined with large construction cones and yellow tape, while the left side was blocked by two smaller orange cones.
A tow truck arrived at 12:35 p.m. and removed the vehicle, which was still drivable.
The driver was not hurt. A Bainbridge police officer drove the car and its owner to a local auto repair shop.
