Quilcene man hospitalized following wreck near Port Townsend

PORT TOWNSEND — A Quilcene man was hospitalized in Seattle on Monday after a collision between a motorcycle and a pickup truck at Eaglemount Road and state Highway 20.

The State Patrol reported that Cody J. Sawbysmith, 34, was transported to Harborview Medical Center following the 5:14 a.m. wreck.

A Harborview spokesperson said Monday afternoon that the hospital did not have a record of Sawbysmith’s condition.

According to the State Patrol, a 1996 Dodge Ram pickup truck driven by Benjamin J. Detray, 46, of Rochester had stopped at Eaglemount and Highway 20 and then entered the intersection.

The State Patrol report said Detray failed to yield right of way to Sawbysmith, whose 2017 Zongshen motorcycle was eastbound on Highway 20 and hit the truck. Sawbysmith was ejected from the motorcycle and thrown over the truck.

He came to rest on the ground east of the pickup truck.

Detray was not injured in the wreck, according to the State Patrol.

His vehicle was driven from the scene.

The report said drugs or alcohol were not suspected in the wreck.

The State Patrol expects to file charges of failure to yield against Detray.
