Bainbridge blotter | Driver hits deer, driver hits tree

Selected reports from the Bainbridge Island Police Department blotter.


6 p.m. A 40-year-old Bremerton woman driving a 2008 Kia Spectra struck a deer as she was making a right onto Koura Road from Miller Road NE. She did not see the animal, which was standing in the road, in time to stop, she said.

There was damage to the right front corner of her car.

The animal fled the scene.

There were no humans injured, and the woman’s car was driven from the scene.


5:47 a.m. A 19-year-old Port Orchard man driving a 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee went off the road and into a tree in a nearby ditch while traveling north on Fletcher Bay Road.

The driver said he was coming from Fort Ward and had been feeling “a little depressed.”

He said he was on his way home when the car swerved off the road. He denied having had any drinks or other intoxicating substances that night, and said he’d been traveling at about 35 mph. He also insisted did not fall asleep at the wheel, though admitted his attention may have been diverted for a short time.

The man had no driver’s license, but only a learner’s permit. He was cited for driving without a license.
