Driver intentionally hits car head-on

A Bremerton woman, 32, was arrested on probable cause after causing a deliberate car accident on Central Valley Road. The Bremerton woman and another female with a history of physical and verbal confrontations met again on July 3. After Shannon Kuhnhenn broke it off with her boyfriend, she went to the residence where she lived with him to pick up her belongings. Kuhnhenn  found Kirsten Pacheco at the residence with Kuhnhenn’s ex- boyfriend. On her way out, Kuhnhenn threw a brick through Pacheco’s windshield before driving off. Pacheco followed the woman in her car, and swerved across a median to slam into Kuhnhenn’s car. She then exited her car with a black club, walking toward Kuhnhenn’s car, where a 1-year-old child sat in the back seat. The car was reversed before Pacheco could reach the car, and Pacheco returned to her car for belongings before taking off on foot. Witnesses snapped the woman’s photo as she walked away from the crash. On July 9, she was arrested and held for a DOC warrant. She admitted to the crash and the hit and run, but said that her car had a “mechanical malfunction which forced her to steer toward Shannon’s vehicle,” states Kitsap County Sheriff’s Office probable cause reports.
