SEQUIM — Two Sequim residents died from their injuries in a head-on-crash Thursday evening traveling on U.S. Highway 160 in Colorado, reported the Colorado State Patrol.

Robert Streett, 52, of Sequim, died on scene and a 16-year-old male in the vehicle, believed to be his older son Robby, died later at Mercy Regional Medical Center in Durango, said Trooper Josh Lewis with Colorado State Patrol.

Lewis said the Streetts — including his wife Josslyn, 49, and a 14-year-old male, believed to be their youngest son, Sawyer — were traveling east of the La Plata County line in a 2017 Honda SUV at 5:15 p.m. when a 2013 Nissan traveling west hydroplaned and crossed the centerline, colliding with the Streetts’ vehicle.

Lewis said the Nissan’s driver, 36-year-old Anthony Rodriguez, of Mancos, Colo., Josslyn and the two teens were transported to Durango.

Representatives of the hospital said Josslyn was transported later to St. Anthony’s Hospital in Lakewood. Representatives there say she is in fair condition.

Hospital representatives in Durango said they could not release Sawyer’s status because he is a minor, but the Colorado State Patrol said he sustained serious injuries.

Rodriguez is listed in fair condition.

Lewis said speed is a factor in the wreck. No drugs or alcohol were involved and everyone was wearing a seat belt, he said.

The Streetts, according to Robert’s Facebook page, were traveling on vacation, including seeing the Grand Canyon.

Robert owns Clear Water Bidet in Carlsborg and was active in numerous agencies and groups including the North Olympic Library System, Sequim Sunrise Rotary and Citizens for Sequim Schools.

Robby attended Sequim High School.

Family friend Brian Jackson started a gofundme page to help the Streett family.

“I would love to see the community support them the way they supported the community,” he said.

“Joss and their youngest son will have so much to deal with. I only hope that we can help relieve some of the financial burden.”
