No one received traffic citations in the Highway 305 accident Monday that involved a semi-truck partially crushing a Hyundai Elantra.

John Sandell and Ida Courier were turning right onto Winslow Way in front of the Bainbridge Island Museum of Art Monday, Nov. 4 when their vehicle was caught underneath the trailer of a semi-truck.

The truck driver was making the same right turn from the outside lane, and the sedan was reportedly in the driver's blind spot. The Hyundai received significant damage to the rear half.

Bainbridge Police Chief Matthew Hamner said Tuesday that no one received a citation after the accident.
