[Photograph 2012.201.B0052.0452]

Description:

Photograph taken for a story in the Daily Oklahoman newspaper. Caption: "HEAVY ON A MAN--Here is shown the heavily loaded truck which figured in the wreck on Southeast Twenty-ninth street early Sunday morning which took the lives of five persons and still may take a higher toll. In this condition the truck landed in a ditch more than 100 yards from the point of collision and pinned John Taylor, Seminole, the driver, in the crushed cab. To release Taylor, who was seriously injured, it was necessary to obtain a winch and lift off several thousand pounds of pipe. The cable from the winch crosses in the right center."
