I received a couple of e-mails about a fatal crash that took place early Sunday morning. For reasons yet unclear, this information did not run on the Web or in today’s paper. Reader Judi Edwards described a roadside memorial to the victim. “Flowers were placed at the site with candles glowing late in to the night last night. As I drove past at 11:30 PM Sunday night there were people standing at the site,” she wrote.

An early morning crash Sunday killed a 19-year-old Port Orchard woman on SE
Sedgwick Road, according to the Washington State Patrol.

Just after midnight, Ashlee S. Moore was driving a 2000 Nissan Sentra west
on the road, also known as Highway 160, when she crossed the center line to
pass a 1993 Dodge Intrepid, driven by a California woman.

She crossed the eastbound lane of traffic as well, leaving the road and
striking a power pole near the highway’s intersection with Bethel Road,
troopers said.

Moore died at the scene. The California woman was uninjured.

Troopers continue their investigation of the accident. Both women were
wearing seat belts, and it is not known if alcohol or drugs were involved in
the crash, the state patrol said.

One thought on “Fatal Crash in South Kitsap

  1. My heart grieves for this family. They will be in our prayers and thoughts.

    The utility workers were working hard to repair the physical damage to the electrical pole today and it was so sad to watch and realize that no amount of work can repair the broken hearts of a family and a community that loses one so young.

    Parents, hug your children. Tell them regularly how much you love them and love them unconditionally.
