Two car vs pedestrian incidents, one fatal, within one week

December 19, 2017

)  Two separate cars versus pedestrian incidents occurred, one fatal, within days of each other in Poulsbo.

 

Poulsbo Fire Department and Poulsbo Police Department responded to a car versus vehicle collision this morning at 8 AM on Hostmark, just south of Caldart. When crews arrived, they found a 63-year-old woman lying on the sidewalk near the bus stop. A young woman driving a white SUV had pulled over and was speaking to police.

 

Firefighters loaded the victim into the medic unit to treat the patient. They requested airlift to Harborview’s Trauma unit, but was denied due to weather conditions. Firefighters then transported her to Harrison Hospital in Bremerton, with life-threatening injuries. Poulsbo Police and the Washington State Patrol are investigating the incident.

 

Just last Friday, a 69-year-old woman was struck by a vehicle while attempting to cross Front Street at Torval Canyon. She died later that evening.

 

Poulsbo Police Sergeant Toy Grossman said, “We want to remind pedestrians to wear bright colored clothing and reflective gear. Flashlights are also a great idea. If possible, make eye contact with drivers to ensure they see you before you cross in front of them. Both drivers and pedestrians should avoid distractions, follow the rules of the road, and use extreme caution in dark inclement weather.”
