Sheriff’s deputy involved in Monday morning crash, suffers minor injuries

From KITSAP NEWS Reports

A Kitsap County Sheriff’s deputy is recuperating from an early morning, single vehicle crash that occurred Monday, Dec. 10. The deputy’s patrol vehicle was totaled in the incident.

The deputy was traveling northbound on Banner Road SE in South Kitsap around 5:35 a.m. Monday morning when his 2004 Ford Crown Victoria patrol car crossed through the intersection of Banner Road and SE Sedgwick Road, entered a private driveway on Sedgwick Road and continued its forward momentum for about 300 feet until it became entangled in brush and struck a large tree stump, overturning the vehicle, according to a news release.

South Kitsap Fire & Rescue engine and medic units responded and assisted the deputy in extricating himself from the car. He was transported to Harrison Medical Center in Bremerton where he was treated for minor injuries and released.

The cause of the crash is under investigation by the Kitsap County Sheriff’s Office traffic unit. The deputy was wearing his seatbelt and alcohol was not a factor in the cause of the crash. The rate of speed of the patrol car at the time of the crash is still to be determined.

No other vehicles were involved in the incident.

As part of standard administrative procedures following a collision involving a sheriff’s vehicle, an accident review board will be convened upon completion of the traffic investigation.
