PORT ANGELES — A 65-year-old woman was found dead, trapped between her van and a drive-through ATM at US Bank on Lincoln Street on Saturday morning.
Port Angeles Police Detective Jesse Winfield said Janice Tucker, who lived near Port Angeles, was found about 10:20 a.m. partially outside of the Oldsmobile Silhouette van she was driving.
The van struck the automatic teller machine, or ATM, at a low speed.
She died of injuries from the wreck, Winfield said, adding that he did not know how it happened.
“I could guess, but I don’t guess during an investigation,” he said.
Winfield declined to comment on the injuries Tucker suffered until police had talked to witnesses.
He did not know if anyone witnessed the incident.
Police also did not know if any other people or vehicles were involved.
A bank customer found Tucker and reported the incident to bank staff, who in turn phoned 9-1-1.
Winfield said police will review the ATM lane’s surveillance tape once it is released by US Bank.
