Description: Photograph taken for a newspaper owned by the Oklahoma Publishing Company. Caption: "Auto Driver Crashes Into Train, Only Complaint---a Headache. George Aebischer's car was ruined this morning, but he considers himself the luckiest man among all the Oklahoma Cityans who sweated and suffered on the city's glassy streets. He rode his sliding auto into a freight train and walked away with nothing more than a headache. "That's as close as I ever want to come to dying." Aebischer said, as he surveyed the the remains of his 1956 Thunderbird at the crash scene at S Villa and Reno. " I wasn't driving very fast, and when i applied my brakes, the car wouldn't cooperate," Aebischer said. As he tried to brake at the crossing, Aebischer's car slid head on against a freight car. The mashed front end welded itself to the train long enough to be dragged across the median, battering the passenger side in the process. Aebischer, 36, of 2342 NW 2, emerged to find himself at dead center in a ponderous traffic jam, traffic backed up for."
