Two hurt in Highway 19 collision treated and discharged

PORT TOWNSEND — Two drivers injured in a collision on state Highway 19 have been treated and discharged.

Jill A. Hamilton, 72, of Port Hadlock and Charles Cotterill, 79, of Port Townsend were both transported Monday to Jefferson Healthcare hospital, where they were seen in the emergency department and released, hospital spokesperson Amy Yaley said.

Hamilton was stopped at the stop sign on Woodland Drive and Highway 19 as Cotterill was northbound on the highway, approaching Woodland Drive, according to a State Patrol report.

Hamilton pulled out from Woodland Drive in her 2007 Subaru Legacy in front of Cotterill’s 2013 Kia Optima, and the vehicles collided in the intersection at 4:28 p.m., the State Patrol reported.

Hamilton was cited for failure to yield at a stop sign, according to the State Patrol.

The report stated both drivers were wearing seat belts, and that neither drugs nor alcohol were contributing factors.

Both vehicles were totally destroyed and towed from the scene, the State Patrol said.
