SUQUAMISH ? A driver was killed on Suquamish Way Saturday evening after
the driver's SUV was struck by a boat and trailer that separated from a
truck in the oncoming lane.
The driver's identity is being withheld until next of kin are notified,
Kitsap County Sheriff's Deputy Scott Wilson said.
The collision happened shortly after 6 p.m. near the intersection of
Totten Road and Suquamish Way. Wilson said a Ford truck towing a fishing
boat was traveling south on Suquamish Way when the trailer separated
from the truck. The boat and trailer swerved into the northbound lane
and struck a Jeep SUV, killing its driver.
No other injuries were reported, Wilson said.
The Sheriff's office is investigating the cause of the crash. Suquamish
Way was closed temporarily.
Things like this is why I'm so nervous about modifying hitches and
receivers. I'm watching to see if they release details of exactly what
failed and under what conditions the failure(s) occurred in.
Hopefully they won't involve welds made by the owner or a friend.
