[Photograph 2012.201.B0052.0948]

Description: Photograph taken for a newspaper owned by the Oklahoma Publishing Company. Caption: "Warning signal post at railroad crossing was uprooted by this car Saturday. One person was injured and traffic snarled early Saturday in a car-train smashup in Oklahoma City. Mrs. Calvin Martin, 38, of 2416 SW 46, was injured when her auto skidded into the back of a Rock Island switch engine at a railroad crossing on S Pennsylvania near Reno. Police said the front end of the woman's car hit the back of the engine, then smashed into a warning signal post. The signal post was uprooted. St. Anthony Hospital officials said the woman was undergoing X-rays Saturday morning but apparently was not seriously hurt. Police said 70 feet of skid marks indicated the woman tried to stop. Warning lights were operating at the time, they said. "The slick street surprised her," the officers said "Evidently she thought she could make a last-minute stop at the crossing." The engine had triggered signal lights at the intersection of Reno and Pennsylvania and traffic stacked up until a switch operator released the signals."

Description: Photograph taken for a newspaper owned by the Oklahoma Publishing Company.

A 38-year-old Oklahoma City business executive plunged to his death Tuesday near Cimarron Field in Canadian County in a gyrocopter he built himself. Witnesses said Robert D. Paddock, a partner with his brother, John, in Paddock Pools, was killed when his Experimental helicopter-type aircraft went into a steep dive, causing the rotor blade to disintegrate. The craft plummeted into a field just north of the Cimarron runway two miles south of Banner. A spokesman for Paddock's family at the home, 4801 N Byron Place, said Paddock had been constructing the Benson Gyrocopter craft for several weeks as a hobby. The spokesman said Tuesday's fatal flight was one of the first, if not the first, that Paddock had made in the ill-fated plane, The Oklahoma Highway Patrol reported the accident occurred at 6:05 p.m. after the one-man craft had made a circle over the airport."
