Coupeville man struck, injured on Camano Island

A driver is facing a vehicular assault charge after striking a pedestrian on Camano Island June 6, according to court documents.

The victim, Coupeville resident Charles King, 65, was in serious condition Monday, according to Harborview Medical Center.

Washington State Patrol reported that Dalton Alum-baugh, 27, was driving a 2007 Volkswagen GTI hatchback west on Camano Drive around 5 p.m.

A car was disabled and parked on the side of the road. King was standing near the rear of the parked vehicle when Alumbaugh’s vehicle struck him and the car.

King was seriously injured and transported to Harborview for treatment.

King sustained a fractured leg and head trauma, according to a trooper’s report.

Alumbaugh told the trooper that he had been working long hours and was heavily fatigued. He said he did not see the parked car and had reached down to get a cookie when the crash occurred, the report states.

Alumbaugh agreed to perform roadside sobriety tests but quit after having trouble keeping his eyes open, the report states.

The trooper obtained a search warrant for Alumbaugh’s blood.

On June 7, a judge in Island County Superior Court found probable cause existed to believe Alumbaugh committed the crime of vehicular assault. He was booked and released.
