Washington State Patrol Detectives Requesting Witness Information Regarding Car Versus Motorcycle Fatality

Bremerton -- Detectives investigating a car versus motorcycle fatality collision that occurred Friday June 5, 2015 at approximately 6:13 AM on west bound SR-16 at Burley Olalla Rd are seeking additional witnesses to the incident. The early morning fatality collision involved a dark gray 2013 Dodge Charger and a black 2007 Yamaha YZF-R1. This collision took place shortly after another 3-vehicle injury collision occurred on west bound SR-16 just west of Burley Olalla Rd. The fatality collision occurred during the extensive traffic back-up from the earlier 3-vehicle collision.

Detectives are hoping to speak with anyone that may have been in the area and witnessed or have any information about the incident. Please call Detective Rod Green at 360-473-0148 if you have information.
