Mother, child injured in northwest valley collision

Updated Friday, May 6, 2011 | 9:56 p.m.


Metro Police said a woman was in extremely critical condition Friday evening after her car and an SUV collided in the northwest valley.

Authorities said Margaret Ryno, 45, was taken to University Medical Center with severe injuries, including a head injury.

The woman’s 5-year-old son also was in the car and suffered minor injuries, police said.

The crash happened about 3:15 p.m. as Ryno was leaving the Tinker Town Learn & Play Center on Smoke Ranch Road, near Torrey Pines Drive, police said.

Evidence and witness statements indicate the 1995 Saturn SL2 Ryno was driving pulled in front of a 1999 Chevrolet Suburban driven by Bennett Mohney, 18, of Las Vegas. The SUV hit the driver’s side of the car, police said.

A passenger in the Suburban suffered minor injuries, police said.

Police were investigating the crash Friday evening. Ryno was still critical as of 9:15 p.m., officials said.

  1. I hate the 35 mph speed limits on such streets as Smoke Ranch, but then I realize if everyone went that slow we would not have many accidents like this.

    So, to avoid a ticket and the speeders, I just stay in the right lane and crawl along at 35 mph.

    And I usually catch up with the speeders at the next stop light.
