A 58-year-old Port Townsend woman was arrested Sunday morning for driving under the influence and hit-and-run driving after she allegedly hit a bicyclist on Highway 20 near Old Fort Townsend Road.

Lori Kaminester was booked into Jefferson County Jail shortly before noon Sunday, July 17. Bail was initially set at $6,000.

Kaminester was driving east on Highway 20 just after 9:30 a.m. Sunday in a 1995 Ford Windstar minivan when her vehicle drifted onto the shoulder, according to the Washington State Patrol.

The mirror on the right side of the vehicle hit a bicyclist, later identified as a 48-year-old Coupeville woman, and the cyclist was knocked into the ditch.

The State Patrol said Kaminester did not stop at the scene. The Ford Windstar was later found in a Port Townsend parking lot by Port Townsend police.

The bicyclist was hurt in the collision and was taken to St. Michael Medical Center in Silverdale for treatment.

In a press memo, the State Patrol said Kaminester will be charged with DUI, hit-and-run (injury), driving with wheels off the roadway, and no insurance.
