Bainbridge blotter | Smashup at Seabold

Selected reports from the Bainbridge Island Police Department blotter.


4:23 p.m. A 68-year-old Gig Harbor man driving a 2018 Mercedes GLC was stopped on Seabold Road, at the intersection of Highway 305, waiting for a break in the traffic to turn left (northbound). He looked left, saw it was clear, saw a break in traffic coming from the right and went, without looking left again.

He pulled onto the highway and struck the front driver’s side of a 1998 Ford van, driven by 44-year-old Bainbridge man. The Bainbridge driver was able to pull his van over to the side of the road, but the Mercedes was disabled in the intersection, blocking traffic.

The Gig Harbor man and Bainbridge driver said they were both uninjured, as did two of the island driver’s passengers.

A third person in the van was seen by medics for a possible head injury, but declined to go to the hospital.

The Mercedes was towed, and the driver was cited for inattentive driving.
