(POULSBO, WA.) — The state patrol says one person was killed and two others were injured in a head-on collision this week just north of Port Angeles early Tuesday morning.
It happened about 6:30 am on Highway 3 at Lofall Road, between Poulsbo and the Hood Canal Bridge.
The patrol says a white utility van crossed the center line for reasons unknown and ran head-on into a semi truck headed in the opposite direction. The force of the impact sent the van back across the center line and into the northbound lane where it ran into a Hyundai Elantra.
The driver of the white utility van, 65-year old Douglas D. Ranney of Port Angeles was deceased at the scene. The driver of the semi truck, a man from Bonney Lake and the driver of the Hyundai, a Bremerton man were treated for minor injuries.
The collisions blocked Highway 3 at Lofall Road for about four hours.
