A driver was hurt after crashing into a tree on Sportsman Club Road Friday morning.

The accident occurred just before 8:30 a.m.

A driver in a Dodge Grand Caravan ES was heading north on Sportsman Club Road when the driver started to go off the roadway to the right. The vehicle traveled approximately 100 feet partly off the road before striking an 80-foot-tall Douglas fir.

The impact caused the Caravan to flip and spin around in the opposite direction and land on the driver's door side.

Aid units and a fire engine from the Bainbridge Island Fire Department responded to the scene, and the Bainbridge Island Police Department blocked off Sportsman Club Road at High School Road.

The driver's injuries were not immediately known early Friday.
