Bainbridge blotter | Didn’t see that one coming

Selected reports from the Bainbridge Island Police Department blotter.


2:06 p.m. A 64-year-old Bainbridge Island woman was driving a 2014 Nissan Rogue south on Highway 305, then attempted to make a right turn onto Winslow Way, misjudged the turn, took it at too high of a speed, crossed the center line and struck a 2015 Ford Transit CG, driven by a Kingston woman.

The other car had been stopped in the left turn lane from Winslow Way onto Highway 305, going north. It was towed from the scene.

There were no injuries.

Police noted the Bainbridge driver had a pre-existing eye injury that may have distorted her vision and made her misjudge the turn.
