Bad accident shuts down freeway
Special to the Times

BLYTHE - Interstate 10 was shut down on July 2 after an accident involving two vehicles and a semi that collided at the state line.

Arizona Department of Public Safety (DPS), California Highway Patrol, Ehrenberg Fire Department and Blythe Fire Department responded to Interstate 10 eastbound after receiving calls of an accident just after 7 p.m.

The cause of the collision is being investigated by Arizona DPS, but what is known is that as a result of the crash, 200 gallons of diesel fuel was leaked from the semi and four people were transported to the hospital with minor injuries.

The freeway was closed until 2:30 a.m. on July 3.

Thank you for the sarcasm. If you read the story earlier like El Pica Buyas and I did you would have seen 'three two vehicles' unedited error in the text. Next time I will call the paper and report the error because so many times I call attention to it and then have people like you yourself see the error corrected and attack. I have the right to query the reason for the crash because it is an unsafe, killing field for less than aware drivers. While your comment may be warranted, you can now replace my comment and look ignorant.

This was not the original one posted here. This one is the corrected one.

It says two vehicles AND a semi. So lets do our math.....2+1=3 Is that clear? Also, it's still under investigation, speed very well may have been a factor then again maybe not that's probably part of the investigation. Just a guess though.

Three two vehicles? Please clarify. Was this a result of not reading speed limit signs and /or slowing down. This area is such a hazard.
