PORT LUDLOW — A 37-year-old man from Seattle died Thursday night in a single-vehicle wreck in which a car collided with trees on Oak Bay Road.
The driver, identified as Matthew Touchette, was driving from Seattle to Port Ludlow on Thursday night, when his car left the roadway and struck several maple trees, said Sgt. Brett Anglin, Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office.
At about 5:48 p.m. Thursday, deputies arrived at the scene after a report of a vehicle off the roadway and jammed against the trees on Oak Bay Road near milepost 10.3, Anglin said.
Deputies performed CPR on Touchette, but eventually he was pronounced dead at the scene, Anglin said.
No other people are suspected of being involved in the crash, Anglin said.
A small dog was riding with Touchette that also died in the crash, Anglin said.
The cause of the crash remained under investigation as of Friday afternoon, Anglin said.
