Woman charged with DUI after rear-ending pickup in Carlsborg

CARLSBORG — A Sequim woman was hurt when her SUV ran into the back of another vehicle stopped at a red light on U.S. Highway 101 at Carlsborg on Monday morning.

Betty I. Owbridge, 77, has been charged with driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol, the State Patrol said in a memo issued Monday. Troopers said she was taken to Olympic Medical Center in Port Angeles. Her name was not listed on a patient census in the afternoon, a hospital spokesperson said.

The State Patrol said that Owbridge’s SUV ran into the back of a pickup that was stopped at a red light at 7:46 a.m. Monday.

The driver of the pickup, Matthew S. Bellah, 45, of Port Townsend, was not hurt, the State Patrol said.

Both cars were westbound on Highway 101. The right lane was blocked for about 50 minutes after the wreck.

Both vehicles were destroyed, troopers said.

Both drivers were wearing seat belts, they said.
