PORT TOWNSEND — Two people were hurt in a wreck at the intersection of state Highway 116 and state Highway 19 about eight miles south of Port Townsend on Tuesday morning.
Melanie D. Hirschel, 28 of Port Hadlock and Michael P. Thomas, 30, of Port Townsend both had been treated and discharged from Jefferson Healthcare hospital by Tuesday afternoon.
The State Patrol cited Hirschel with failure to yield after the 8:49 a.m. wreck.
Troopers said that Hirschel was traveling westbound on Highway 116 making a left turn onto Highway 19 while Thomas was traveling northbound on Highway 19 and that Thomas, driving a 1999 Chevrolet Tahoe, hit Hirschel’s 2000 Chrysler LHS in the driver’s side after Hirschel filed to yield to Thomas.
Both vehicles were able to move to the shoulder. Both were towed away.
Both drivers were wearing seat belts.
Drugs or alcohol was not involved in the wreck, the State Patrol said.
