Four in 25 DaysJanuary 25th, 2007 by josh farley
Kitsap County has already seen four road fatalities this year, adding one today for the death of 20-year-old Jordon Michael Jimenez.
No single cause jumps out of the four accidents combined; but I am going to post the four circumstances below so you can see for yourself. A special thanks goes out to Marsha Masters, president of the local chapter of MADD, for the list.
Terry Thomas, 38, of Port Orchard, was hit twice by separate cars at about 6 p.m. in the 1600 block of Bay Street. Stormy weather made the visibility for the drivers who hit him poor. It is not believed drugs and alcohol were involved.
Gemma Zapata Collins, 30, of Bremerton, was killed when she lost control on icy Bond Road near Sawdust Hill Road just before 8:30 a.m. and spun into the passenger side of a pickup truck. Collins and the truck’s driver were wearing seat belts and no alcohol or drugs were involved.
Christopher Anthony Brooks, 18 of Port Orchard, was going north on Phillips Road about 1:20 am at the 5100 block of Phillips Road when his pickup — circa 1965 and thus had no shoulder seat belt — began to leave the roadway. The brakes locked and the truck collided with a power pole on the passenger side. Investigation is still pending.
Jordon Michael Jimenez, 20, of South Kitsap, was driving a 2006 Chevrolet Cobalt and heading north in the 6000 block of Old Clifton Road, near Alameda Avenue, shortly after 10 a.m., when he lost control of the car, left the road to the right and rolled several times before coming to rest near a power pole. He died two days later at Harborview Medical Center. Investigation is still pending.
