PENDLETON, Ore. — A Port Orchard woman died Thursday in a Portland hospital where she was being treated for injuries suffered in a Aug. 19 traffic crash along Interstate 84.
According to the Oregon State Police, Ashleigh Camille Williams, 21, died at Oregon Health and Science University.
OSP reported Williams was driving a Nissan Maxima eastbound on Interstate 84 near milepost 211 about 10:44 a.m. when the crash happened. Troopers reported the car drifted toward the center median and the driver lost control as she tried to move back toward the traffic lanes. The vehicle crashed into a guardrail before coming to rest in a ditch.
Williams, a 2010 South Kitsap High School graduate, was transported by ambulance to St. Anthony Hospital in Pendleton and then transferred by air ambulance to the Portland hospital.
Her brother, Jared Williams,18, was taken to St. Anthony Hospital with minor injuries. He graduated from SKHS in June.
OPS reported that driver fatigue is a possible contributing factor in the crash.
