Bainbridge blotter | Contact lens problem: Didn’t see this crash coming

Selected reports from the Bainbridge Island Police Department blotter.


7:53 a.m. Police responded to a two-car collision in the area of Highway 305 and Hidden Cove Road.

Traffic had slowed due to congestion just north of the intersection, when 71-year-old Poulsbo woman, driving a 2017 Toyota Camry, began adjusting her contact lens and struck the rear of a 2012 Chevy G2500, driven by a Poulsbo man, “at a low speed.”

There were no injuries.


5:49 p.m. Police were called to a car crash in the area of Highway 305 and Day Road.

A 2017 Ford Fusion, driven by a 49-year-old Quilcene man, was stopped at a traffic light at the intersection, when a 2005 Honda Element, driven by a 47-year-old Poulsbo woman, struck him from behind.

The woman said she had been watching a vehicle in her rearview mirror and did not see the car in front of her stop.

Both vehicles sustained reportable damage, but there were no injuries.
