Port Townsend woman in serious condition after scooter-car collision

PORT TOWNSEND — A 73-year-old Port Townsend woman was listed in serious condition in a Seattle hospital Thursday after her motorized scooter collided with a vehicle at the intersection of Fillmore and Clay streets Tuesday.

Port Townsend resident Bonnie Hamma was driving north on Fillmore Street when she collided with a vehicle going west on Clay Street at 7:41 p.m. Tuesday, Port Townsend Police Sgt. Troy Surber said.

The driver of the vehicle was not injured.

Hamma was airlifted to Harborview Medical Center that night. Surber said she was in a stable condition.

She was moved out of the intensive care unit Thursday and remains in serious but stable condition, said Bobbi Nodell, Harborview media relations manager.

Surber said the collision was not at a high speed, but that her injuries were severe because it was scooter versus car rather than car versus car.
