Bainbridge blotter | Not paying attention

Selected reports from the Bainbridge Island Police Department blotter.


9:26 a.m. Police were called to a three-car crash on Highway 305, near the intersection of Koura Road.

A 19-year-old man from Coupeville said he remembered slamming on his brakes and then hitting the car in front of him, but could not remember why exactly he had to stop.

The car he struck was driven by a 34-year-old Seattle woman. She said she’d been driving in traffic when her car was struck from behind and that the intensity of the impact forced her into a collision with another car, a 2104 BMW driven by a 45-year-old Bainbridge woman.

All three were wearing seatbelts at the time, but only the Coupeville man’s car had airbags that deployed. He claimed to have hit his head and was examined by medics, who said he did not require emergency transport.

Both other drivers were not injured, though the Seattle woman said she might go to the doctor to be examined.

All three vehicles were damaged. The BMW was driven away, the Seattle woman’s car was towed, as was the Coupeville man’s, who was cited for inattentive driving.

Police cleared the road of debris.
