4:49 PM: No serious injuries reported in a collision involving two cars at 37th and Thistle in Gatewood (map), with one car on its side, but westbound Thistle is blocked until a tow crew arrives.

5:05 PM: Added a photo. Our crew doublechecked at the scene and police confirmed, no one required medical attention at the scene. The road should be clear shortly. P.S. Thanks to the people who called and e-mailed to let us know about this.


  1. Hopefully everyone is okay.

    I wonder if this is what knocked our internet connection off on Trenton.

  3. There must be a magnetic pull in WS whenever there’s a car crash, seems like they always go onto their sides.
    Glad all are ok though.

  4. Having just been in a very similar accident, be aware of whip lash and soft tissue damage in your neck and mid-upper back. You might seem fine now but something could set it off if you’re a pretty active person…I’ve learned the hard way!

  5. There was another crash at 49/Andover on Sunday, involving a car and a bicyclist, in an unmarked intersection. The car’s windshield was dented, to show a spider-web crack pattern, but apparently no major injuries.

  6. CMP you are correct! Sometimes these injuries don’t show for a few days or 44 years later like myself where my back is giving me problems now!

    Mie Lindblom OMG and no one had any major injuries that bicylist is very lucky.
