Bainbridge blotter | A quick disappearance, times two

Selected reports from the Bainbridge Island Police Department blotter.

WEDNESDAY, AUG. 8

6:10 p.m. Police were called to the scene of a hit-and-run collision in the parking lot of a downtown Winslow bar/restaurant. The driver of a 2015 Subaru Outback said she’d left the establishment to find a note on her windshield saying a tan pickup truck had struck her car while backing out of a nearby space, then left.

The note was left by a witness.

Police noted the damage and then spoke with the witness, who had recorded the pickup’s license number. That was traced to an island man, who said his son had been driving the truck lately.

When called, the younger man said he had been at the restaurant, but did not believe he’d struck another car. However, he promised to get his insurance information when he got home and relay it.

Several phone calls later, he still had not contacted police with the insurance information.
