PORT TOWNSEND — A Port Hadlock woman was taken to Jefferson Healthcare hospital in Port Townsend after crashing her car on state Highway 104 about 16 miles southeast of Port Townsend, the State Patrol said.
Mariah Byrd, 36, was transported to Jefferson Healthcare shortly after crashing her 2011 Oldsmobile into a tree at about 2:40 p.m. Monday, the State Patrol said.
On Tuesday, the hospital was not able to confirm that Byrd had been seen Monday evening.
Trooper Russ Winger, State Patrol spokesman, said an officer at the scene described Byrd as possibly suffering from a head injury. She did not appear intoxicated, he said.
“We don’t think there was any impairment involved,” Winger said. “It looks like it was just inattention. She got on the shoulder and lost control. That is what she reported, and that is what we’re leaning toward.”
Her car came off the right side of the road, swiped a guardrail and drove roughly 125 feet before hitting a tree. Both air bags deployed, the State Patrol said.
The wreck is under investigation.
