WSP: Kingston Teen Causes Three-Car Accident
A 17-year-old driver caused a three-car accident in Kingston on Wednesday, according to a Washington State Patrol report. The roadway was blocked for an hour and 40 minutes.
The boy, driving a 1997 Nissan Maxima, was reportedly stopped at state Route 104 in the left turn late at Parcell Road Northeast in Kingston around 6:11 p.m. Oct. 1. A white 1993 Saturn SL2 was headed westbound on state Route 104 approaching Parcell Road Northeast when the 17-year-old reportedly failed to yield the right-of-way and turned left in front of the Saturn.
The two cars collided in the westbound lane of state Route 104. The momentum of the Saturn pushed the Nissan further westbound. The Saturn hit a 2000 GMC S10 pickup truck driven by William G. Lecerff, a 23-year-old Suquamish man. The truck was damaged but driven from the scene.
Lauren R. Moon, a 23-year-old Kingston woman, was driving the Saturn and was not injured. Her passengers–21-year-old Bearon S. Old Coyote, of Kingston, and a 3-year-old girl–were both injured and transported to Harrison Hospital in Bremerton.
Neither Lecerff or the 17-year-old driver were injured. Everyone involved in the accident wore safety belts.
The 17-year-old driver of the Nissan was charged with failure to yield, according to the WSP. The accident did not reportedly involve drugs or alcohol.
