Cats missing after Interstate 10 rollover
Special to the Times

BLYTHE - A Phoenix, Ariz. woman loses two cats in the desert after the vehicle she was driving Nov. 18 on Interstate 10 rolled.

According to California Highway Patrol, Lori McMann, 44, was driving eastbound on I-10 west of the Corn Springs overpass just before 1 p.m. when she attempted to pass slower moving traffic in the right lane and made an abrupt turn into the left lane. She lost control of the vehicle, which was pulling a trailer, crossed both lanes of the eastbound lanes and as the vehicle hit the shoulder, both vehicle and trailer rolled. The vehicles stopped on the wheels, facing west.

Medics transported McMann to Palo Verde Hospital with moderate injuries.

In addition to McMann, 13 live cats were traveling in the vehicle. Two cats died in the accident; seven survived; and four cats ran away from the scene. Two of the four cats that ran away were found, but two of the cats are still missing.

Leo is described as brown tabby short hair and Bright Eyes is a brown and white tabby. They were last seen between Desert Center and Corn Springs Rd. on the date of the accident.

The search for the two cats continue and if anyone has seen them, please call or text Lory McMann at 602-622-6943 or send an email Loriland3816@earthlink.net.
