ELDERLY COUPLE CRITICALLY INJURED IN JOSHUA TREE CRASH

An elderly couple were critically injured in a crash in Joshua Tree Saturday afternoon. About 1:10, Velma Ringwald, 58, of Twentynine Palms was stopped at the southbound stop sign at Sun Ray Road and Highway 62, when she pulled out directly into the path of a bread delivery truck driven by Wallace Schempp, 61, of Desert Hot Springs, who was driving westbound on the highway. Schempp hit his brakes and tried to avoid hitting Ringwald’s 2006 Toyota Camry, but was unable to avoid a collision. Velma Ringwald and her passenger, Clarence Nolan, 83, of Twentynine Palms, suffered major injuries and were taken to Desert Hospital in Palm Springs. Wallace Schempp was uninjured.

  • 58 is not elderly, and neither is 61. 83 is. The inference is that an elderly person caused the accident, and actually, the youngest of the involved people is the one who pulled into the path of the bread truck. Ask Gary D. who knows how old I am. I get sensitive at 75.

      Linda-
      Exactly! I was wondering when 58 years of age became “elderly”. Maybe the reporter is a teenager. ;-)
      Anyway, hope everyone involved has a speedy recovery.
