Two hurt in Oak Bay Road crash

Road blocked for about 45 minutes

PORT LUDLOW — Two drivers were taken to a hospital after a head-on collision on Oak Bay Road on Tuesday afternoon, according to the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office.

Marla Maguire, 81, of Port Ludlow, and Edward Moyer, 58, of Belfair were taken to St. Michael Medical Center in Silverdale in stable condition with non-life-threatening injuries, said Undersheriff Andy Pernsteiner.

Maguire was traveling south along Oak Bay Road from Port Hadlock in a 2003 Chevrolet Tracker when she pulled into the oncoming lane to pass a pickup truck that was turning into Harolds Hallow at about 12:29 p.m., Pernsteiner said.

Moyer was traveling north along Oak Bay Road in a 2005 Hyundai Santa Fe, when Maguire pulled out in front of him and he attempted to swerve to avoid her, resulting in the front end of her vehicle being severely damaged as it hit the left side of his vehicle, Pernsteiner said.

Both vehicles’ airbags deployed, and Maguire reported leg pain, which officials believe may be a possible leg fracture, and Moyer reported that he had difficulty breathing, Pernsteiner said.

Port Ludlow Fire & Rescue arrived to assist and the road was clear after about 45 minutes.

Both vehicles were totally destroyed, Pernsteiner said.

No alcohol or drugs are suspected to be involved with the collision.

Maguire is expected to be cited for unsafe passing, Pernsteiner said.
