Description

Photograph taken for a story in the Oklahoma City Times newspaper. Caption: "Mrs. A. J. Hale walked away from this mess with a headache and a couple of cuts. Woman Survives Wild Accident Car Wrecked, Driver Bumped. A Nicoma Park woman took a wild ride with death Tuesday, and escaped with only a headache. Mrs. A. J. Hale, 35 stepped shakily out of her automobile after: Cresting a hill on Coltrane Rd., she spotted the stop sign at NE 23. the car apparently skidded on gravel, slammed sideways into the sight. Impact of the collision sheared the steel pole off at the ground, sent her car spinning 83 feet toward a ditch. Hitting the ditch, the car started rolling. It flipped over four times, rolling once through a barbed wire fence, and rested in a pasture. The right side of the car was caved in. The rear window glass was gone, and the back seat came to rest atop the truck. The area immediately around the driver's seat was the only undamaged spot. Mrs. Hale was taken to Mercy Hospital. Doctors said she bumped her head once and suffered several small cuts on her legs and arms."
