Collision blocks State Highway 308, spills fuel on roadway
A collision between a Navy contractor truck and a car caused a small fuel spill and closed both lanes of State Highway 308 for nearly two hours Monday.
Only minor injuries were reported, Hefton said.At about 2 p.m. a Washington State Patrol trooper traveling east attempted to pull over for speeding a 34-year-old Poulsbo woman traveling west. The driver of the truck following behind the trooper, a 39-year-old Kingston man started braking when he saw the troopers lights causing the truck to jackknife, said Trooper Tony Radulescu.
The woman, driving a Volkswagen Beetle, also braked and hit the truck with a "glancing blow," said Sgt. Dan Hefton. Her car was towed from the scene.
Troopers estimated that about 20 gallons of fuel leaked from the truck following the collision.
