Description: Photograph taken for a story in the Oklahoma City Times newspaper. Caption: "This Just isn't possible! But that's how it turned out. DRIVER IS PARKING, CAN'T DODGE 3-CAR TANGLE: One minute he was parking his car and the next minute he found a Pontiac in his lap. David Jones, 5006 S Blackwelder, was just one of the confused people at NW 5 and Broadway, Monday, but he probably came out on the short end of the deal. Witnesses say a rather strange three-car smashup happened this way. The Pontiac, driven by J. M. Martin, 1144 NW 95, was crossing the intersection, headed east. A 1949 Ford, driven by Mrs. J. A. Penny, 622 SW 6, was headed north on Broadway and made a right turn onto NW 5. Both drivers claim the other ran the light. At any rate, Mrs. Penny's Ford make a one point landing on Martin's left rear fender, Martin's Pontiac spun around the street a while then headed for the sidewalks. Jones had just parked his 1951 Ford on a meter when he heard the crash looked up, and there came the Pontiac. Try as he might, Martin couldn't quite steer through the three-foot wide space between cars so he landed on Jones front fender. The ford was neatly shoved over the curb and the noise was all over. The end result: Mrs. Penny had a few dents on the front end of her 1949 model; Martin had his left rear fender bashed in and the right front fender and part of the grill mashed up. Jones, the fella who was just sitting there found his 1951 Ford knocked practically off its foundations."
