Peninsula man who died in Kitsap County wreck identified

POULSBO — A Port Angeles man who died in a wreck near Poulsbo on Tuesday has been identified as Douglas D. Ranney.

Ranney, 65, was traveling northbound on state Highway 3 when the Chevrolet van he was driving crossed the centerline and collided with a Freightliner semi and trailer driven by Colby J. Johanneck in the southbound lane, according to a State Patrol collision memo.

The impact pushed the van back into the northbound lane, where it collided with a 2013 Hyundai Elantra driven by David K. Miyashiro, the State Patrol said.

Johanneck, 32, of Bonney Lake and Miyashiro, 56, of Bremerton were treated for minor injuries and released at the scene, troopers said.

The wreck occurred near Lofall Road between Poulsbo and the Hood Canal Bridge on Tuesday.

Highway 3 was closed in both directions for four hours, troopers said. Traffic was diverted onto Big Valley Road.

Johanneck and Miyashiro were wearing seat belts at the time of the crash, the State Patrol said. Ranney was not wearing a seat belt, troopers said.

Neither drugs nor alcohol were suspected as being factors in the wreck, the State Patrol said.
