Description:

Photograph taken for a story in the Oklahoma City Times newspaper. Caption: "FIVE-CAR PILE UP- caused by a young motorist's glance at a ditch-digging machine--resulted in this mile-long traffic jam on the north bypass at the Wednesday evening rush hour. With in 15 minutes after the accident occurred at 5 p.m. at the Pennsylvania intersection, cars had backed up all the way to Western. Police charged Margaret Ackors, 20 of 3012 NW 19, with negligent driving. Her car plowed into the rear of the one ahead, setting off a chain reaction involving three other vehicles. Miss Ackors was the only one injured, however."
