We received a copy of the accident report, and have gathered more details of the crash that happened at 5 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 18.

The officer stated that the car Flynt was driving did not stop at the stop sign as she was coming out of Serro Place. The car received the most damage on the front left side. Flynt was ejected and was found under the vehicle with life-threatening injuries. The report shows that Flynt does not have a valid Ohio driver's license.

The City of Riverside press release states that as of 10 a.m., Flynt remained in the intensive care unit at Miami Valley Hospital.

UPDATE @ 10:30p.m. Oct. 19:

Alcohol is a factor in the crash that injured Lisa K. Flynt, 47, of Dayton, Riverside police Sgt. David Crigler stated in a news release issued Sunday.

Flynt was driving a 1999 Oldsmobile when she pulled out from Serro Place and into the side of a tractor trailer, which was traveling on Valley Pike in the area of the Dollar General store.

"Flynt was ejected from the vehicle and was found trapped under it," Crigler stated.

She was taken by the Riverside Fire Department to Miami Valley Hospital, where she remains in the intensive care unit.

The truck, owned by USF Holland Trucking, was driven by Ian A. Givens, 45, of Riverside. The company operates a truck terminal on Valley Street a short distance from where the crash occurred, Crigler said.

Flynt's passenger, Cierra D. Mallory, 24, of Dayton, was taken to Grandview Hospital in Dayton, where she was treated and released.

The Oldsmobile is owned by Amanda Carson of Dayton, according to the release.

A preliminary crash report will be available after 11 a.m. Monday, Riverside police said.

UPDATE @ 2:30p.m. Oct. 19:

Lisa Flynt remains in critical condition, according to Miami Valley Hospital.


The daughter of controversial Hustler publisher Larry Flynt was in critical condition Saturday after she was involved in a two-vehicle crash Friday in Riverside.

Lisa K. Flynt, 47, formerly of Huber Heights, was in the intensive care unit Saturday at Miami Valley Hospital in Dayton, according to Riverside police.

Lisa Flynt was rushed to the hospital after crashing a green Oldsmobile sedan around 5 p.m. in the 2300 block of Valley Pike.

Police said Flynt turned in front of a semitrailer. She was ejected from the vehicle, which rolled over her and pinned her underneath it.

The passenger, 24-year-old Cierra Mallory, was treated and released from Grandview Hospital in Dayton.

Police on Saturday were executing a search at the bar where the two were allegedly coming from before the crash occurred.

The name of the bar was not released.

Lisa Flynt's brother and Larry Flynt's son, 41-year-old Larry Flynt Jr., drove to Dayton from Columbus Saturday to visit his sister in the hospital.

He said in a brief telephone interview Saturday morning that doctors were trying to determine the extent of her cranial injuries.

Larry Flynt, 71, is the publisher of Hustler magazine and chairman of an adult entertainment empire that also includes television and video services, retail stores, websites and a Los Angeles-area casino.

Flynt launched his empire in Dayton, where he operated several "go-go" bars during the 1960s. His first publishing venture was a men's tabloid called Bachelor's Beat, launched in Dayton in 1968, according to this newspaper's archives.

In 1988, Larry Flynt won a landmark U.S. Supreme Court case on the First Amendment, Hustler Magazine v. Falwell.

A spokesman for Larry Flynt Publications Inc. did not respond to a request for comment.
