Bainbridge man injured after Poulsbo driver hits his motorcycle

A Bainbridge Island man was hurt after he was struck by a car while riding his motorcycle on Highway 305 in Poulsbo Tuesday evening.

According to the Washington State Patrol, the Bainbridge man, 63, was on a 2006 Harley Davidson and was traveling south on Highway 305 through Poulsbo when a 25-year-old Poulsbo man in a 2006 Toyota Camry turned north onto the highway from a parking lot and hit the motorcycle rider.

The collision occurred just after 5:30 p.m. Oct. 1 near Milepost 8 in Poulsbo.

The injured rider was taken by a medic unit to Harrison Medical Center-Bremerton for treatment.

The Poulsbo driver was not hurt.

Both the motorcycle and the Toyota were totaled in the crash, and the Harley and the Camry were towed from the scene.

The State Patrol said the cause of the collision was failure to yield the right of way, and officials said the Poulsbo main would be charged with not yielding to traffic.
