Troopers Seeking Additional Witnesses to Injury Collision
on SR16 in Kitsap County

Bremerton -- Washington State Patrol troopers are seeking additional witnesses to a car versus motorcycle injury collision that occurred today on west bound SR16 just east of Mullenix Rd in Kitsap County. At approximately 1:10 P.M. troopers say that a 2001 Pontiac Grand Am was traveling west bound SR16 in the inside lane of two lanes when the driver lost control of the vehicle and collided with a 2006 Ducati motorcycle, traveling west in the outside lane. Troopers are investigating the possibility of a third vehicle being involved, possibly a white Volvo, or other white sedan that may have "brake checked" the Pontiac and contributed to the Pontiac driver losing control.

Anyone that may have witnessed the actual collision and/or any events leading up to the collision contact Trooper Matt McMillen at 360-473-0300 or Matt.McMillen@wsp.wa.gov.
