The driver of the pickup did suffer a broken wrist and el bow..I know her and her family very well....read the sign on the pick up and it will tell you where she is employed....There has been another MEC. arrested for dui his name didn't make the paper like the CRNA's did ...His name was mentioned on the radio...May be some kind of agreement has been made with PD,Hospital and times...I do recall a while back one of the officier's in uniform made the front page so why would the chief of police with hold information...

You mention OB doctor and we know there is only one and he is friend of God. So the police did not release his name even we all know who it is. But in the past even police never released any information about other employees, newspaper went a head, print made up stories anyway.
Now either the police has learned lesson not to talk to newspaper at all or the newspaper learned a lesson not to tarnish someone's reputation. This time it's quite the opposite, newspaper delete the name of the doctor.
To radio mention I totally agree with you. Now this OB doctor who lives in town for years does not know not to make a u turn on small street, or was he really under the influence and newspaper learned the lesson not to write anything until it's proven. He is the best buddy for MEC chief the GOD.

Article comment by: No Radio Mention? .

This is a (almost) first. Not only was the name not mentioned but never heard the name mentioned on the radio either. If it was then pardon me. The usual protocol is having your name in the paper and all over the radio that you were arrested for a "possible" DUI. Then after the damage is done you are found innocent. In this particular case only certain people will know the "Rest of the Story"

If PVVT will not delete his name....It was (deleted) the OB doctor at the hospital... the police report is the only information PVVT could print, if names weren't given in the report the paper can't take names at random and print it.....I do feel once the investigation is done we will be updated...

When would you leave our town? Stop playing the protector of your buddy. Saving him from his one son, now not letting the police release his name even he was on fault. We know you control MEC and hospital board. I hope they put you on speedy trial and you serve 25 years in state prison, them you will have enough time to think who you did wrong. Sick of you.

Anyone involved from the hospital has to be at fault by this newspaper standards. oh wait what about this hospital doctor's drug level and alcohol level. Did the police asked for breath analyzer or blood. Because that is the standard protocol. Wonder why the news has not mentioned that.

I TOTALLY AGREE THAT WHY THE NEME OF THIS DOCTOR INVOLVED IN ACCIDENT WAS NOT RELEASED. THIS IS VERY UNSUAL FOR OUR BELOVED NEWS PAPER TO SPARE A MEC MEMBER.
AS FOR PAYING ATTENTION IN DELIVERY ROOM MORE THAN DRIVING, (deleted). OH AND DID ANYONE CHECKED HIS BLOOD ALCOHOL LEVEL AND DRUG SCREEN, BECAUSE THAT'S A MUST THING TO DO IN BLYTHE.THAT'S DISCRIMINATION.
HOW COME THE NEWS PAPER HAS NOT PUBLISH HIS NAME? AND THE STATE SHOULD BE CALLED AS USUAL AND HE TOO SHOULD BE LET GO FOR BEING UNSAFE FOR OUR BELOVED TOWN BLYTHE!

Wow PVH, did anyone police or the ER staff checked (deleted) drug/ alcohol level. Was he under the influence? Did they ask to do a breath analyzer or blood test. I bet no one checked. So the million dollar question is WHY NOT???
This news paper and some people of our town can be so nasty to one employee after an innocent accident when there was no one injured and now nothing has been done or written by the paper about good doctor's best friend. What kind of journalism is this. This story should be the front page news as similar or falsified stories have.

Article comment by: He's gone and done it again

Give it up, Dr. You are NOT God! Walk it off. You don't learn! Now the news article probably was just taken from the police report, and the Chief didn't want to hurt his buddy, so he didn't release the names. Yes, it is rather "strange" that the uninjured person was taken to the hospital first, and the more seriously injured was second priority. Get the chief and his dirty cops out of here!

Did you ever stop to think that the PVVT is printing what was given to them by Blythe Police Department.
It is the Police Department who is withholding names not PVVT!
They will protect the MEC because of their friend the Chief of Staff!!
News is it was not the Poor Doctor with Criminal charges but one of the MEC.
"lets hope" spilled the beans on who.
