PORT LUDLOW — A two-car head-on collision caused by a cat blocked State Route 19, closing traffic for more than an hour Sunday.

Alyson M. Savage, 22, of Port Hadlock, was driving southbound with passenger Dana L Kavanagh, 21, of Trout Lake, on SR 19 when a cat she was transporting jumped on her, causing her to lose control of her Volkwagen Golf, and slid into the northbound lane, according to a State Patrol report.

Savage’s vehicle hit a Toyota Celica, driven by Robert C. Laford, head-on, the report said.

The wreck closed the road from about 1:30 p.m. until 3 p.m. as emergency workers responded from East Jefferson Fire-Rescue and Port Ludlow Fire and Rescue.

Laford was injured and transported to Harrison Medical Center in Bremerton, while Savage and Kavanagh taken to Jefferson Healthcare in Port Townsend as a precaution, the report said.
