PORT TOWNSEND — Two people were injured and one person was cited Friday morning in a three-vehicle blocking collision on state Highway 20 just west of Fort Townsend Road, according to a State Patrol incident memo.
Casey D. Penaluna, 50, of Port Townsend, was taken to Jefferson Healthcare hospital in Port Townsend. Her condition was unavailable Friday afternoon.
She was charged with second-degree negligent driving, no insurance and third-degree driving while license suspended, the State Patrol said.
Alice J. Creel, 83, of Port Townsend also was hurt; her condition was unavailable from Jefferson Healthcare hospital on Friday.
A 2004 Grand Pontiac driven by Penaluna was eastbound on Highway 20 just west of Old Fort Townsend Road about 10:20 a.m. Friday when it crossed the centerline and collided with a 2017 Honda CR-V driven by Roger B. Creel, 85, of Port Townsend, with Alice Creel as a passenger, the State Patrol memo said.
Then Penaluna’s Grand Pontiac struck a 2012 Chevrolet Impala driven by Lavonne M. Geiger, 58, of Port Townsend and came to rest in the eastbound ditch. Creel’s CR-V came to rest in the westbound ditch and Geiger’s Impala came to rest on the shoulder.
All four people were wearing seatbelts and neither drugs nor alcohol were involved, the memo said.
