Bainbridge man killed, child injured on 305

A 42-year-old Bainbridge Island man was killed Sunday along State Route 305 north of Seminole Road after the truck he was driving went off the road, according to Washington State Patrol reports.

Jonathan Markowitz and his 8-year-old son were heading north around 2 p.m. when the man’s 1977 Toyota pickup truck left the road to the right, went down an embankment and struck a tree, according to reports.

Markowitz was pronounced dead at the scene. An autopsy is scheduled for Monday, according to the Kitsap County Coroner’s Office.

His son was initially taken to Harrison Medical Center, but was then airlifted to Harborview Medical Center in Seattle with a broken neck.

Troopers were still investigating the cause of the accident Sunday, which caused the shutdown of the northbound lanes of 305 for almost three hours.
