Bainbridge blotter | Fresh off the boat

Selected reports from the Bainbridge Island Police Department blotter.


1:16 p.m. A two-car crash at the intersection of New Brooklyn Road and Madison Avenue resulted in heavy damage to both vehicles but no serious injuries.

A 49-year-old Poulsbo woman, driving a 2014 Chevy Suburban, stopped at the intersection, traveling east on New Brooklyn. She was not aware, she said, that Madison Avenue did not have a stop sign at the intersection, and so she pulled out in front of an oncoming 1999 Isuzu Amigo, driven by a 70-year-old Silverdale woman. The cars collided.

The front passenger in the Amigo had a pre-existing injury that may have been aggravated by the crash, but was not transported by aid crews.

The Amigo had to be towed away, though the damage threshold was met on both vehicles.


1:21 p.m. Police were called to investigate an empty boat found adrift.

An island homeowner spied the yellow sailboat from his backyard, said it had been sitting offshore for several days, and rowed out to investigate.

Finding it empty, he photographed the inside of the boat, including a woman’s name and phone number and insurance agent info posted there. Police called the woman and were told the boat belonged to her niece and her niece’s boyfriend. Police then called the niece and were told to speak to the boyfriend, who informed them he’d sold the boat to another man.

The decal number on the boat was registered to the new owner, whose phone number was provided by the boyfriend. Police called him and he promised to retrieve his boat as soon as possible.
