Man who drove off Southworth ferry dock ID’d as Belfair resident

The man who drowned after he drove a car off the Southworth ferry dock and into the water on Friday evening has been identified as a 60-year-old from Belfair, Mason County, officials said Monday.

His death is classified as a suicide, according to the Pierce County Medical Examiner’s Office.

The man drove a Ford Escape eastbound on Highway 160 in Kitsap County shortly after 6 p.m. and didn’t stop at ferry terminal’s traffic gate even though the warning lights were activated, the Washington State Patrol said. The car struck the traffic gate at a high rate of speed and drove off the dock, into the water.

A Seattle Fire Department dive team recovered the unconscious man from the car, which was in water 30 to 60 feet deep. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
