PORT ANGELES — A Port Angeles teenager remained in stable condition Sunday at Olympic Medical Center, recovering from injuries received in a Thursday night wreck.

On Thursday night, Seamus Hanley, 15, of Port Angeles was riding in a 2001 Honda Civic driven by his father, Thomas F. Hanley, when they were struck by a sport utility vehicle that crossed the centerline of Marine Drive at West Boathaven Drive.

Seamus Hanley received internal injuries and required emergency abdominal surgery.

A hospital representative reported that he remained hospitalized and was in stable condition Sunday.

Thomas Hanley suffered a fractured sternum and was treated and released from Olympic Medical Center.

Port Angeles police said 62-year-old Robert Allen Spencer of Port Angeles was driving a gray 2003 GMC Envoy SUV east on Marine Drive when it struck the driver’s side of the Hanleys’ westbound car.

Spencer was booked into the Clallam County jail for investigation of two counts of alcohol-related vehicular assault and is expected to be charged in Clallam County Superior Court on Tuesday.
