PORT TOWNSEND — A traffic collision involving two cars and a motorcycle slowed traffic but caused no injuries on state Highway 20 near Port Townsend, according to an East Jefferson Fire-Rescue spokesman.
Eastbound traffic on state Highway 20, much of it coming into town for the first day of the Port Townsend Film Festival, was slowed for nearly an hour after the Friday afternoon wreck, spokesman Bill Beezley said.
The motorcyclist and drivers were all evaluated and found to be uninjured, Beezley said.
East Jefferson Fire-Rescue personnel were called to the wreck at 9493 state Highway 20 at 2:38 p.m., he said.
According to the drivers, two motorcycles had stopped in the eastbound lane while a car ahead of them made a left-hand turn across the double-yellow median into a business.
A black Nissan Altima driven by a 34-year old Seattle man veered toward the guardrail on the right to avoid hitting the motorcyclists. Another car, a Volvo C70 driven by a 22-year old Port Townsend man, slammed into the rear of the Altima, pushing it into one of the motorcyclists.
Both vehicles were towed from the scene. The motorcycle suffered only minor damage and was driven away.
The fire department did not identify the drivers, citing privacy laws.
