Leonard Sytsma, 82, of Chimacum was being cared for at the Harborview Medical Center intensive care unit in Seattle on Sunday, a day after being airlifted from the scene of the collision at the intersection of state Routes 116 and 19.
The wreck occurred at about 4:45 p.m. Saturday, as Sytsma, driving a 2005 Toyota Corolla, was turning from westbound 116 to southbound on Route 19, according to a report by State Patrol Trooper Mark Dorn.
Lorraine A. Blair, 66, of Port Hadlock, who was driving a 1994 Jeep Cherokee northbound on State Route 19 when her vehicle collided with the Toyota, also was injured in the collision.
Blair was treated and released from Jefferson Healthcare hospital in Port Townsend, according to a Jefferson official.
State Route 119 was partially closed for about two hours, from 4:45 p.m. until 6:50 p.m. while State Patrol investigated the wreck, according to the Department of Transportation.
Sytsma was cited for failing to yield the right of way, Dorn reported.
