3 Port Orchard women survive a freeway rollover wreck with minor injuries

Taken from an incident report by a Washington State Patrol Trooper:

Five Kitsap County residents survived a rollover collision, on Interstate 90, 15 miles west of Cle Elum, with relatively minor injuries.

The car, a 2004 Saturn Vue, left the roadway to the right, and then overcorrected to the left. It crossed two lanes of oncoming traffic, struck an embankment, rolled and came to a rest on its side on the freeway’s left shoulder.

The vehicle was totaled to Cascade Towing, and aid units transported each of the car’s occupants to Kittatas County hospital.

Crane Hazel, an 88-year-old from Port Orchard, was apparently uninjured but went to the hospital as a precautionary measure, and Evelyn M. Rowland, a 14-year-old from Port Orchard went to the hospital for the same reason.

Twenty-six-year-old Amy J. Bailey, from Port Orchard, may have suffered chest and rib injuries in the collission.

The car’s driver, 63-year-old Donna G. Peterman-Altig, of Bremerton, suffered facial abrasions and a possible head injury, and 20-year-old Teleah A. Dunway, of Bremerton, experienced a sore chest.

Each of the car’s occupants wore a seatbelt at the time of the wreck.
