Carlsborg: Granddaughter of woman killed in Highway 101 collision injured in separate crash

CARLSBORG — A week to the day after a woman lost her life in a two-vehicle collision on U.S. Highway 101 at Mill Road, her granddaughter was injured in a three-car crash at the same intersection.

Lisa Pinpin had come up to Sequim for the memorial service for her grandmother, 75-year-old Lorna Kuhlman.

State Patrol investigators say Kuhlman died instantly Aug. 6 when a speeding car struck her car with such tremendous force that it sent the vehicle careening several hundred feet into the parking lot of Flipper’s Restaurant.

The irony was almost too much for the her widower, Don Kuhlman.

“This is unbelievable,” a shaken Kuhlman said at the scene of Friday’s crash.

“It’s starting to look like this family is jinxed.”
