[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."
