Woman ejected from SUV dies at hospital

Washington State Patrol Trooper Brian George can’t stress enough the importance of wearing a seat belt and on Thursday it just might have saved the life of a Silverdale woman.

Dawn Michelle Cain, 44, was traveling northbound on Ridgetop Boulevard at 6:41 p.m. when she ran the red light at the intersection of Hillsboro Drive. Her 2003 Toyota Highlander T-boned another vehicle, a 1998 Honda Civic driven by a 29-year-old Silverdale woman, as it made a left turn onto Ridgetop Boulevard. Cain’s sport-utility vehicle rolled and she was ejected through the sunroof. She was not wearing her seat belt.

Cain was transported to Harrison Hospital where she died.

“If she had been wearing her seat belt, she would have been walking and talking,” George said.
