POULSBO — A Sequim man who was involved in a three-car wreck just south of Poulsbo on Wednesday evening was uninjured, the State Patrol said Thursday.

The Port Orchard woman who reportedly caused the collision had been treated and discharged from Harrison Medical Center in Bremerton on Wednesday night, said Jacquie Goodwill, medical center spokeswoman.

Linda G. Orton, 59, of Port Orchard was driving a Gray 2009 Ford Focus south on Johnson Way south of Poulsbo at about 8:30 p.m. Wednesday, according to the State Patrol.

Troopers said Orton crossed the centerline and collided with a black Ford F-150 pickup truck driven by 66-year-old Robert W. Garling of Sequim heading north, said Trooper Russ Winger, State Patrol spokesman.

Ann L. Trujillo, 61, of Silverdale, who was heading north behind Garling, hit the back of his truck with the 1998 Toyota Camry she was driving.

Garling and Trujillo were uninjured, the State Patrol said.

Winger said a citation against Orton is pending a blood test for alcohol content.

Garling’s truck and Orton’s Ford Focus were destroyed, the State Patrol said, adding that Trujillo’s Camry was towed from the scene.
