Description:

Photograph taken for a story in the Oklahoma City Times newspaper. Caption: "Crash!! Both Drivers Charged. It's apparent why Lesie Edson, shown above, is so glum. The bashed-in car is his. He was westbound on NW 25 about 8 a.m. Monday and was crossing N Douglas when another car hit him on the right. The impact knocked Edson's car over on its top, but he escaped serious injury. The other driver was Jerry Eugene Hughes, 17, of 1143 NW 58, according to accident investigator F.C. Daniels and W.A. Williams. Edson lives at 1405 NE 23. He was charged with having no driver's license, and Huges was charged with failure to yield the right of way."
