One injured in two-vehicle collision near Chimacum

CHIMACUM — A two-vehicle collision briefly blocked state Highway 19 at Egg and I Road, and one driver was transported to a hospital.

The collision occurred just after 5 p.m. Tuesday about 12 miles south of Port Townsend, according to a memo from the State Patrol.

Amanda L. Svoboda, 39, of Port Ludlow was driving a red 2014 Ford Escape SUV northbound on Highway 19 when she slowed down to turn left onto Egg and I Road, troopers said.

Her car was struck from behind by a black 2019 Kia Sorrento SUV driven by Corrina L. Boyd, 42, of Poulsbo, troopers said.

Svoboda’s vehicle came to a stop on Egg and I Road while Boyd’s SUV continued into the southbound ditch and rolled onto the driver’s side.

Boyd was transported in an ambulance to Jefferson Healthcare hospital, according to the State Patrol. A Jefferson Healthcare nursing supervisor said Wednesday that Boyd was treated and discharged.

Svoboda was not injured, the State Patrol said.

Both drivers were wearing seat belts. Drugs or alcohol were not factors, according to the State Patrol.

Boyd was cited for driving too fast for conditions.

Both vehicles were destroyed and towed from the scene, the State Patrol said.

Traffic alternated between lanes for about 30 minutes.
