Sher­iff Ron Krebs shares this sad news…

On 05/31/2021 at approx­i­mate­ly 5:15pm a grey Sub­aru was trav­el­ling into town from the west end of San Juan Island when the car veered into the oncom­ing lane at Beaver­ton Val­ley and Lowe Lane and struck a jeep trav­el­ling the oppo­site direc­tion in the west bound lane. 

The dri­ver, iden­ti­fied as Fri­day Har­bor res­i­dent Vida Wight, was pro­nounced deceased on the scene while the dri­ver of the Jeep was trans­port­ed to the Peace Island Med­ical Cen­ter with minor injuries.

After our pre­lim­i­nary inves­ti­ga­tion, it is believed that speed and dis­tract­ed dri­ving played a major part in the cause of the accident.
