A Belfair woman was injured during a head-on collision on State Route 302 on Monday night.

Katie J. Bates, 27, was driving a 2005 Saturn westbound when she was hit by a 1991 Dodge Ram, according to the Washington State Patrol. The Dodge was being driven eastbound by Gig Harbor resident Kenneth C. White.

Troopers said White crossed the double yellow centerline and hit the front left of Bates' car, which ended up in a ditch on the right side of the roadway. White's truck came to rest partially in the ditch, as well.

The wreck occurred at 9:22 p.m. in the 3500 block of the highway.

Bates was taken to Harrison Hospital in Bremerton by a friend. White was transported by aid car to Mason General Hospital in Shelton.

The wreck is still under investigation and charges are pending.

Both vehicles were totaled and towed by North Shore Towing.
