Selected reports from the Bainbridge Island Police Department blotter.


1:55 p.m. A 52-year-old Suquamish man on a Honda VT750 motorcycle was injured after he was hit by an 18-year-old Bainbridge man in a 2005 Nissan Frontier.

The Bainbridge driver was stopped at a red light on High School Road at Highway 305 when he pulled out into traffic and hit the motorcyclist, who was going south on the highway at the time.

The motorcyclist was then knocked into the northbound lane, where he was hit by a 2007 Hyundai Santa Fe driven by a Poulsbo woman.

The Bainbridge driver said he saw the motorcycle approaching the intersection but thought he had enough time to make a right turn. He didn’t, and his wheels started spinning on the wet pavement when he tried to accelerate.

The driver was cited for failure to yield.
