Description

Photograph taken for a story in the Daily Oklahoman newspaper. Caption: "An Okmulgee man was killed Wednesday afternoon when his car was nearly flattened by a truck at Oklahoma City`s I-35 and Wilshire Blvd. intersection - near the spot a truck crash killed a Wichita boy six weeks ago. Lawerence Rumple, 67, pinned in his car for 15 minutes, was dead on arrival at Baptist Memorial Hospital. The semi-trailer driver, Boyce White, 41, Oklahoma City, sustained a head injury but was not hospitalized, police said. Police said the truck was northbound on the expressway when the automobile turned onto the highway from Wilshire. The truck struck the car, rolled over on the auto and mashed the sports coupe to a height less than three feet in spots. Witnesses, fearing fire , attempted to remove Rumple, but were unable to help him. Police said the truck driver was not at fault and was traveling "less than the speed limit" when the crashed occurred. Speed limit at the site is 45 miles an hour and heavy traffic signs recently installed to warn motorists. On June 26 a car-truck crash claimed the life of 9-yeay-old Rodney Munoz. The youth passenger in an auto which left the road slammed into a ditch after being struck by a truck, police said. Rumple`s death was Oklahoma`s City year compared to 47 a year ago."
