Driver sustains serious injuries after crossing center line

Sheriff’s office: Man fell asleep at the wheel on Anderson Lake Road

PORT TOWNSEND — A Port Hadlock man was taken to a Seattle hospital after sustaining serious injuries in a collision on Anderson Lake Road on Thursday.

Corey Spaulding, 34, of Port Hadlock, was driving a Honda Civic eastbound on Anderson Lake Road at about noon when he reportedly fell asleep and crossed the center line into the westbound lane, said Deputy Brandon Przygocki of the Jefferson County Sheriff’s office.

An unidentified female 73-year-old Port Townsend resident was driving westbound in a Honda CR-V and stuck the rear of Spaulding’s Civic, causing the car to spin off the roadway and strike a tree, Przygocki said.

Witnesses reported a bicyclist narrowly avoided being struck by the spinning Civic, Przygocki said.

Spaulding was transported to Harborview Medical Center for significant, non-life threatening injuries, Przygocki said.

No information was available late Thursday afternoon form Harborview about his condition.

Spaulding was cited for driving with a suspended license and was issued an infraction for negligent driving, Przygocki said.

The driver of the CR-V was taken to Jefferson Healthcare as a precautionary measure.
