Description

Photograph taken for a newspaper owned by the Oklahoma Publishing Company. Caption: "Nathaniel White, 1506 NE 10, surveys what happened when an auto came to call his living room. An Oklahoma City woman was injured Friday morning when the accelerator pedal stuck on her 1956 model auto and it rammed into the front of a duplex at 1506 NE 10. Mrs. Dorothy Monroe, who lives in the east side of the duplex at 1508 NE 10, suffered chest injuries and was taken to St. Anthony hospital. House Damage $2,500 Her car smashed into the front of the concrete-block constructed house, knocking a hole 10 feet by 10 feet. The car, the front end heavily damaged, stopped three feet inside the living room. Officer H.J. Bradshaw estimated damage to the house and furniture, which was littered with broken parts of concrete blocks. Nathaniel White, 23, was asleep in a bedroom of the duplex when the crash occurred. "I woke up in a hurry," he said. "I thought someone had dropped a bomb." Stop, Then a Roar-- Officer Bradshaw said Mrs. Monroe had stopped to allow a car to pass, and the turned into the driveway of her home when the accelerator pedal apparently stuck. He said witnesses told him they heard a roar of the car motor and then the auto smashed into the house, knocking down a section of the wall, the front door and a window. The car was purchased only Tuesday and had 125 miles registered on the speedometer."
