Selected reports from the Bainbridge Island Police Department blotter.

FRIDAY, DEC. 29

9 p.m. A 53-year-old Bainbridge woman in a 2003 Subaru Forester went off the road and hit a tree.

When police arrived, a witness who had been in another vehicle, who was also a nurse, was tending to the driver of the Subaru, who was found unresponsive in her vehicle.

The woman was extracted from the vehicle by personnel from the Bainbridge Island Fire Department.

The vehicle had major damage to the front end.

A witness said the vehicle came off Arrow Point Drive at a high rate of speed and crossed the intersection without stopping at the stop sign before hitting the tree. The witness said the driver was going “very fast.”

The woman told police she had four glasses of wine with dinner earlier.

The driver’s significant other arrived on the scene and said she had a heart attack several years ago and was prescribed “a lot of medications.”

The driver was cited for reckless driving.
