KITSAP COUNTY, WA — Two people were hospitalized Saturday afternoon after a high-speed crash involving two vehicles on the Hood Canal Bridge in Poulsbo, reports The Leader.
The accident occurred on a span of State Route 104 near the middle of the bridge shortly after 3:00 p.m.
Washington State Patrol said a Seattle woman was speeding when she lost control of her 1995 Jeep Wrangler, crossed the roadway’s centerline, and struck a 2020 Hyundai Elantra head-on. The impact of the crash pushed the Jeep onto its side.
The Hyundai’s 63-year-old male driver, as well as a 54-year-old male passenger in the Jeep, were transported to St. Michael Medical Center-Silverdale with undisclosed injuries.
The driver of the Jeep and a 64-year-old female passenger in the Hyundai were not injured in the crash.
Both the Jeep and the Hyundai were totaled and had to be towed from the scene.
WSP said the accident forced the bridge to shut down for over an hour.
