Bainbridge blotter | Clunk in the trunk

Selected reports from the Bainbridge Island Police Department blotter.


2:45 p.m. A 61-year-old Bainbridge man was cited for inattentive driving after causing a crash on Highway 305 near the Day Road intersection.

Police arrived on the scene, along with paramedics, to find one driver outside his car claiming he had a sore neck from the mishap. He went to get checked for injuries as police began speaking to the island man in the other car, a 2006 BMW. The Bainbridge man said he’d been driving south on the highway and did not see the traffic ahead of him was stopped until it was too late.

Police noted the man had been going about 25 mph and braked very hard to avoid the crash. The damage to both vehicles was “barely noticeable.”
