Bremerton Man Hospitalized After Car Crashes Into His House
A Bremerton man is in the hospital after a car crashed into his house.
Here’s what happened, according to a press release from the Bremerton Police Department:
Bremerton police officers responded around 2 a.m. early this morning to Sylvan Way and Halverson Avenue for a report of a car crash. They found a vehicle that had struck a house. The lone occupant of the house, a 31-year-old man, had been sleeping in his bed at the time of the collision. The vehicle crashed through the bedroom wall and struck the man, who sustained “significant injuries” to his face and abdomen. He was transported by air to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle.
The driver of the vehicle remained at the scene and was located by officers. The driver cooperated with the officers’ investigation, and reportedly admitted to taking prescription medication and smoking marijuana earlier in the evening. He provided a voluntary blood sample and was evaluated by a drug recognition expert.
Officers determined the driver had been traveling southbound on Petersville Road and ran a stop sign at Sylvan Way. He continued driving southbound through a yard before driving down an embankment, and crashing into the house.
The driver was taken into custody on a charge of vehicular assault, and was booked into the Kitsap County Jail.
The victim is listed in stable condition, and will likely require surgery for his facial injuries.
