At about 4:15 p.m. Saturday, John C. Damico Jr., 83, of Kirkland, was southbound on Paradise Bay Road at Highway 104 in a white 2008 Ford Ranger pickup, while Stephanie J. Ignacio, 44, of Bremerton, driving a red 1994 Jeep Cherokee, was westbound on Highway 104 approaching Paradise Bay Road, according to a State Patrol report.
The report said Damico attempted to turn left onto state Highway 104 in front of the Jeep, which struck the Ranger.
The vehicles came to rest in the center turning lane of state Highway 104, leaving both drivers with injuries.
Damico refused aid, and Ignacio was transported to Harrison Hospital in Bremerton for treatment.
On Sunday afternoon, Ignacio was no longer a patient at the hospital, according to a Harrison spokeswoman, but it was unclear if she was treated and released or transferred to another hospital.
Both vehicles received reportable damage and were towed from the scene.
Damico was charged with failure to yield.
Neither drugs nor alcohol were suspected as being a factor in the wreck.
