One dead in early morning crash
Special to the Times

BLYTHE - A Long Beach man died after the vehicle he was riding in was rear-ended on Interstate 10 this morning just after 5.

Glenroy Cadogan, 68, of Long Beach, was driving a Chevy Lumina westbound just east of Wiley's Well Road when, for an unknown reason, he

stopped his vehicle and began to drive in reverse. Hilario Garcia of Blythe, was also driving westbound on I-10 in the same lane and was unable to react in time, hitting the back of the Lumina. The passenger in the Lumina, who¹s name has not been released, was pronounced dead at the scene. Cadogan was transported to Desert Regional Medical Center by CareFlight. Garcia received moderate injuries and declined treatment.

The collision is under investigation by California Highway Patrol-Blythe office.

Hmmm... It's is my understanding that the person driving the vehicle in reverse was not an employee of either of the prisons. As for the poor guy that rear ended him, imagine what a horrid shock when he realized the car in front of him was driving backwards. It is an extremely sad ACCIDENT for all those involved.

Sad-I never said the prison workers werent hard workers, just that alot of them have a lead foot. Apparently you dont make that drive every morning to witness it like I do! If a survey was conducted on the traffic between the hours of 5 to 6 the highest destination would be the prisons and/or construction sites by far. Just wishing for a little police presence so folks slow it down. They are rarely out there that time of the morning.

Yeah, I agree. Move the Guard shack or Route the cars through the rest area. Big problem solved.

A huge contributing factor to the congestion at Wiley's Well Offramp is the location of the guard shack entering the the Genesis construction site. It causes back up all the way back to the freeway resulting in very unsafe conditions.

It seems like there have been alot of accidents in that area lately. I also would like to add that the most recent ones weren't linked to any "prison workers/NASCAR drivers" This one looks like perhaps the driver did what alot of drivers do and wanted to turn around in the dirt median instead of using the off-ramp. Not saying that's what happened but can't understand going in reverse on the I-10. Not a good comment to the hard workers at the prisons either. There are plenty of other drivers going above the speed limit on the interstate.

The CHP or Sheriff need to do something about the traffic on I10 headed to that exit in the mornings, or sad to say there are going to be more traffic deaths. With the added construction worker traffic, coupled with the NASCAR racing prison workers, its like driving in LA traffic doing 85 plus. Not a good combo!!
