PORT TOWNSEND— Traffic was slowed on Upper Sims Way on Monday afternoon after a car and van collided, tossing the van on its side.

At around 2:30 p.m., a Mazda sedan going north on Sims Way struck the right side of a Toyota Sienna van at Sims' intersection at Haines Street.

The van's driver apparently was headed into the nearby boatyard. Instead, the van landed on its left side facing south along Sims Way.

The driver, who was not identified, was taken to Jefferson Healthcare hospital with head and neck injuries, according to police on the scene.

Neither the driver of the Mazda, Jody Avery, nor his three passengers, were hurt.

“We were going through the intersection, and he was right there,” Avery said. “It was a green light for us.

“It happened so suddenly, so unexpectedly, I'm still sorting it out.”

Police were still unable to immediately construct a timeline of the collision.

The accident is under investigation, and no citations were issued, said Port Townsend Police Sgt. Troy Surber.
