Bainbridge blotter | Driver misses stop sign, but not tree

Selected reports from the Bainbridge Island Police Department blotter.

TUESDAY, APRIL 9

3:05 a.m. A 60-year-old Bainbridge Island woman drove her car, a 2012 Volkswagen Passat, off the road and into a tree in the area of Hidden Cove and Phelps Road.

The woman told police she slid through the intersection because of the rain, and had not seen the stop sign because it was so dark.

She drove through the intersection, off the road, across a ditch and struck a small tree.

The woman told police she thought she’d struck her head and she was having trouble calming herself. A medical unit arrived and could find no signs of injury. The woman declined the offer of a ride to the hospital.

The car was towed.
