State Patrol: Three fatalities in wreck on Highway 19

Cause remains under investigation

PORT TOWNSEND — Three people died in a single-car crash on state Highway 19 on Monday, according to the State Patrol.

The vehicle was traveling northbound about 3:42 a.m. Monday when it drifted to the right and struck a tree, Trooper Chelsea Hodgson said.

The driver was identified as Cameron Davis, 20, of Port Townsend. The two passengers were identified as Lillimarie Genaw, 21, of Port Hadlock and Gabryel Mills, 18, of Bremerton, according to the State Patrol.

Davis and Genaw both were wearing seat belts, but Mills was not wearing a seat belt, the State Patrol reported.

All three were pronounced dead at the scene.

The crash involved a 2002 white Hyundai Accent at milepost 12 near Four Corners Road south of Port Townsend and was reported by the state Department of Transportation at 5:34 a.m.

The cause was still under investigation Monday afternoon. It was unknown whether drugs or alcohol were factors, the State Patrol said.

Highway 19 reopened at about 11:15 a.m. after it had been fully blocked for much of the morning with detours using Highway 20, according to WSDOT.
