The Kitsap County Sheriff’s office is investigating the cause of a head-on car accident that killed two drivers. Mark Thoman, age 25, of Silverdale and Steve Cockerham, age 47, of Poulsbo were both killed when their vehicles collided head-on near the Kitsap County treatment facility on Tuesday morning around 9:30 am reports The Seattle Times.
Apparently, Thoman was headed north in a 2002 Volvo in the 12300 block of Brownsville Highway when his car crossed the center line on the curve and collided with Cockerham’s pickup trip.
Kitsap County Sheriff’s spokesman Scot Wilson in the Kitsap Sun said they are looking into the following factors in determining the accident cause:
- Speed of both vehicles
- Seat belt use by both drivers
- Weather and road conditions
- Shifting loads in the pickup truck.
Heartfelt condolences go out to both men’s families.
