Police investigate auto crash

Marty Bachman


BLYTHE - Blythe Police officers responded to an injury traffic collision at the intersection of Third and Murphy the morning of June 18.

Officers found that a Silver Mercury Sedan driven by Lyndsay Lindervall, 18, of Blythe, and a White Kia driven by Tonia Gonzalez, 39, of Blythe, had been involved in a collision at the location.

Statements indicated that prior to the collision, Lindervall had been traveling eastbound on Murphy Street while Gonzalez was traveling northbound on Third Street when she struck the passenger side of the Mercury.

The passenger side doors on the Mercury had been damaged, and a 54-year-old woman passenger was unable to exit the vehicle.

Blythe Fire Department responded to the scene and was able to free the passenger, who suffered a leg injury. Neither of the drivers reported any injuries at the scene. The passenger was transported to the hospital by Blythe Ambulance, where she was treated and later released.

Alcohol was not involved in the collision, and the cause remains under investigation.

An earlier version of this story incorrectly stated that Lindervall struck the Mercury.

Way back I asked if the Blythe Police Department had sent any officers to traffic school. I guess, I now have my answer here. So what is it here? If no Alcohol or drugs involved then, what? Do they then let the insurance companies fight it out?

Talk about the lack of leadership and concern for the people of this community from the Chief and the City Council.

I read and re-read, not that this was an incredible story but trying to figure out how the woman could turn so hard as to hit the side of her own car. Now, how doe BPD write this one up? Did they perhaps also write this article? I do hope there were no serious injuries.

So if I read this right she ran into the side of her own car?
"a Silver Mercury Sedan driven by Lyndsay Lindervall, 18, of Blythe"
Then its go's on to say
"Statements indicated that prior to the collision Lindervall had been traveling eastbound on Murphy Street Gonzalez had been traveling northbound on Third Street when Lindervall struck the passenger side of the Mercury."
I don't think so.

Distracted driving? The magic number is 14.7. The value 14.7 is the air pressure at sea level. It is the stoichiometric sweet spot for proper fuel air ratio in one's car engine. It is also the amount of feet per second traveled for every 10 miles per hour on the speedometer. For even relatively slow speeds, 30 MPH would be 44.1 feet every second. At freeway speeds say 70 MPH, in about 3 seconds you have travelled a football field. One thousand and one, one thousand and two, one thousand and three. You can argue politics, law enforcement, civil rights...etc. Physics is physics, ignore the speed at your own peril. Even if all of your safety equipment in the car works, the sudden stop from say 30 MPH to zero can do a lot of damage. I have witnessed cuts on the arms of individuals who have had the air bag deploy. A couple have had to have stitches to effectively close up the wounds.
