Bainbridge blotter | Don’t let the door hit you

Selected reports from the Bainbridge Island Police Department blotter.


7:52 a.m. A 57-year-old Bremerton man was driving south on Madison Avenue and said he followed the curve onto Parfitt Way when he saw the driver’s door of a vehicle that was parked alongside the road open up in front of him.

He was not able to stop in time and hit the door of the vehicle, a 2016 Toyota Camry, that was parked facing west on Parfitt Way.

The owner of the Toyota, a 63-year-old Bainbridge man, said the driver who hit his car was going too fast and had passed too closely to his vehicle. He also said the driver was in a hurry to leave the scene because he wanted to get to work on time.

Both vehicles sustained moderate damage.

The owner of the Toyota was cited for a traffic infraction for not making sure the road was clear before he opened his car door.
