Bainbridge blotter | Suquamish man drives pickup into building

Selected reports from the Bainbridge Island Police Department blotter.


3:55 a.m. – A 24-year-old Suquamish man drove his 1998 Chevrolet S10 pickup into the front of a building on Hildebrand Lane.

Police found the front end of the truck inside an apartment room in the building.

The driver declined medical aid.

He said a shoe had gotten lodged under his brake pedal and he was unable to stop in time before hitting the building.

A witness said he was in the lobby of the building when he heard an engine revving, then looked out the window to see the truck drive into the building, and called 911.

The man was given field sobriety tests but it was determined he had not been drinking.


9:44 p.m. Police pulled over a Lexus driven by a 64-year-old Bainbridge man near Hidden Cove Road for suspicion of impaired driving after the man was going 65 mph in a 50 mph zone on Highway 305 and an officer saw him drive over the center line and fog lines multiple times.

The driver said he had three glasses of wine. He performed poorly on roadside sobriety tests, and a breath sample resulted in a reading of .124.

He was arrested and booked into Kitsap County Jail. Bail was set at $5,000.
