Bainbridge teen, Poulsbo woman injured in Highway 305 crash

A Bainbridge Island teen and a Poulsbo woman were injured in a crash on Highway 305 Saturday night.

According to the Washington State Patrol, the Poulsbo woman, 58, was heading south on 305 just before 9:30 p.m. and approaching Johnson Way in a 1987 Nissan pickup when she rear-ended a 2017 Mini Cooper that was stopped at a traffic light.

The Mini Cooper was driven by a 19-year-old Bainbridge man, who was not injured.

A passenger in the Mini Cooper, a 19-year-old Bainbridge man, was injured but was not taken to the hospital.

The Poulsbo woman was hurt in the crash and was airlifted to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle.

Two other passengers in the Mini Cooper — a 16-year-old Bainbridge boy and a 19-year-old Bainbridge man — escaped injury.

The highway was closed for 90 minutes after the crash and remains under investigation, according to the Washington State Patrol. Charges are pending against the Poulsbo woman.

Both vehicles were impounded.
