Woman hit by car in Port Angeles dies

She died in Seattle, according to her obituary published Sept. 9.

PORT ANGELES — A transient Port Angeles woman has died after being struck by a vehicle in Port Angeles on Aug. 31.

Police said Doneen Ivy Penn, 56, was in the southbound lane on the 200 block of South Lincoln Street in Port Angeles when she was struck by a Toyota Corolla at about 10:36 that night.

She was originally transported to Olympic Medical Center but was then airlifted to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle, according to police.

She died in Seattle, according to her obituary published Sept. 9.

A candlelight vigil was held at the Shaker Church in La Push on Friday and her funeral was Saturday, according to her obituary.

The Toyota was driven by Robert Case, 29, of Port Angeles, Officer Whitney Fairbanks said Sept. 1.

She said no charges were expected against Case because there is no reason to believe a crime was committed.

Chief Brian Smith said there is no new information regarding the incident and no charges are expected.

Case cooperated with officers, and drugs and alcohol did not appear to be a factor in the accident, Fairbanks said.
