A Port Angeles woman, Lisa Marie Bird, age 46, was killed in a single car accident after she lost control of her SUV and rolled it off State Route 101 near the Elwha River reports the Washington State Patrol (WSP).
According to the report, the car accident occurred around 3:00pm on Thursday afternoon. A WSP officer noticed Bird driving erratically and noticed that one rear tire was flat and rolling on a bare rim. The officer followed Bird, who was driving around 90+ MPH, with lights and sirens on but she failed to pullover. Around milepost 241, she lost control of her vehicle, went over the center line and rolled the car 200 foot down an embankment.
Bird was pronounced dead at the car accident scene.
The Patrol is investigating whether drugs or alcohol were a factor in the accident. Bird was wearing her seat belt. They believe she may have been involved in a domestic dispute shortly before getting into her car.
