Alleged drunken driver in Poulsbo crash charged with vehicular homicide | #teacher | #children | #kids


A woman accused of being intoxicated behind the wheel on New Year’s Eve and driving into oncoming traffic on Highway 305 near Poulsbo, killing a taxi driver, was charged Monday with vehicular homicide.

The crash at 6:36 p.m. Friday that killed Jennifer L. Winchester, 50, of Bremerton, was the fourth serious crash since June near the intersection of Highway 305 and Johnson Road. Winchester was an employee of Harborside Taxi in Bremerton.

The crash that killed Winchester is similar to a serious crash in early December where a woman driving in the same area, also allegedly drunk, crossed the center line and struck an oncoming vehicle, sending its driver to the hospital.

On Monday, Dorothy Erlinda Liebenrood, 36, of Poulsbo, pleaded not guilty to the charge of vehicular homicide for Winchester’s death. Kitsap County Superior Court Judge Bill Houser set Liebenrood’s bail at $250,000.
