Bainbridge blotter | Crash and dash

Selected reports from the Bainbridge Island Police Department blotter.


8:10 a.m. A 51-year-old man from Annapolis, Maryland, driving a 2019 Subaru Crosstrek Hybrid was stopped for traffic near the intersection of Madison Avenue and Highway 305 when a 52-year-old man from Port Angeles, driving a 2014 Ford Focus, approached from the rear, failed to see that traffic was stopped and drove into the back of the Subaru.

The Washington man photographed the damage to both vehicles and the other driver’s license. The Annapolis man said the accident must be reported as he was driving a rental car. The Washington man agreed, then said they should move off the highway and onto Madison Avenue for safety.

The Maryland man did so, and then saw the Washington man promptly drive away.

Police recovered the front panel and license plate of the Subaru at the scene.
