Bainbridge blotter | Off-island visitors driving badly

Selected reports from the Bainbridge Island Police Department blotter.


12 p.m. An unoccupied 2002 Chevy Trailblazer was parked along the driveway of a private residence on Grow Avenue when a 2006 Dodge Durango, driven by a 44-year-old Poulsbo man, backed into it while reversing out of a nearby driveway.

The car then left the scene.


8:27 a.m. Police were called to a two-car collision on Highway 305, near Hidden Cove Road, when a 24-year-old man from Saint Mary’s, Georgia in a 2017 Ford F150 struck the rear of a 2012 Subaru Impreza driven by a Poulsbo woman.

The man said he’d been looking at his GPS, trying to find his way to the ferry terminal, and did not see traffic had stopped at the intersection ahead of him.

He was cited for inattentive driving.
