Description

Photograph taken for a story in the Oklahoma City Times newspaper. Caption: "Ten Putnam City youngsters were injured when a truck hit this bus Monday. Ten children were injured Monday morning when a Putnam City elementary school bus was hit broadside by an oilfield truck at NW 50 and MacArthur. Warr Acres police chief, Nelson Beckett, said a ticket was issued against the school bus driver--James Fenno, driver of No. 7 of the Putman City bus fleet. Driver of the truck was Kenneth Richardson. The 10 youngsters, all of whom attend Putman City Central grade school, were examined at Baptist Hospital after the accident. Only one of them, Greg Houk, son of Mr. and Mrs. Tom Houk, 6803 NW 60, was admitted, suffering a broken ankle. He was reported in good condition. "It was a wonder no one was killed. It (the bus) took quite a lick on the side," Chief Beckett said. Most of the injuries consisted of cuts and bruises, hospitals officials said. Treated and released were: Donnie Pretchert, son of Mr. and Mrs. Tom Pretchert, 902 NW 60 Dr.; Glenda Harrell, daughter of Mrs. Bonny Harrell, 7012 NW 62; Tony Abbott, son of Mr. and Mrs. Tom Abbott, 7022 NW 61 Terr.; Milton Fletcher, son of Mr. and Mrs. Martin Fletcher, 6805 NW 63; Elisa Lawyer, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Don Bray, 6908 NW 53. Also, Cora Duncan daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Bud Duncan, 7601 NW 60; Robbin Trotter, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Jack Trotter, 7004 NW 50; Cindy O`Neal daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Howard O`Neal, 6801 NW 60 and Linda Stewart, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Herbert Stewart, 7008 NW 61 Tree. Glenda Harrell said she didn`t know what happened "The first thing I knew I was in the steps and I hit my head," she said. Elisa Lawyer said, "I had a wreck and lost my front tooth." She said she was glad to miss school, but she thought there must be an easier way."
