[Photograph 2012.201.B0052.0570]

Description: Photograph taken for a newspaper owned by the Oklahoma Publishing Company. Caption: "This was the crash scene minutes after the tragedy, as survivors struggle out of the ill-fated bus which plunged 23 feet over the side of a narrow bridge near Hydro early Thursday. Six persons were killed in the state`s worst highway accident since 1949. A greyhound bus and an automobile, their bumpers locked together, plunged into a creek bed near Hydro on U. S. 66 Thursday killing six people and injuring 35 in what was described as the state`s worst highway accident since 1949. Thursday`s tragic accident put August in line for the dubious honor of being the bloodiest month on state highways so far this year, with 16 fatalities in only six days. If that rate continues, 75 persons will die in highway accidents before the month is over. one highway patrol spokesman said. The highway patrol termed Thursday`s crash the worst in the state since February 2, 1949 when seven persons were killed in Tulsa in an automobile-train collision. Dead in the accident near Hydro are: Mrs. W. F. Brady, 75, Little Rock, Ark., killed instantly. Mrs. P. A. Ferguson, 48, Compton, Calif., killed instantly. Mrs. Susie Webster, 65, Joplin, Mo., who died shortly after noon in the Oklahoma General hospital at Clinton of internal injuries. Jack Paris, 70, McAlester, killed instantly. His wife was injured. Mrs. Jean Louis Wilkey, 20, Springfield, Ill., wife of the driver of the car. She was killed instantly. Jerry Ruth Wilkey, 2, daughter of Mrs. Wilkey. Officers said Mrs. Brady was Mrs. Ferguson`s mother. They were traveling together and both formerly lived in El Reno. Mrs. Webster died five hours after the crash. Critically injured were Mrs. Vivian Cornman, 19, Riverside, Calif., and Mrs. Margaret Thompson, 55, Clovis, N. M."
