Tarboro, NC Head On Crash Kills Seven, Sep 1959
CAROLINA CRASH KILLS SEVEN, INJURES TWO.
Tarboro, N.C., Sept. 30 (UPI) - A car carrying eight persons swerved across a highway center line Wednesday and slammed head-on into another automobile, killing seven of its occupants and critically injuring two other persons.
Several of the victims were found hanging from windows in the car. The two vehicles were so badly tangled by the impact that it was difficult to distinguish parts of the two autos.
The death toll equaled that of North Carolina's worst traffic accident of the year, which occurred Aug. 16, when seven persons were killed and two others injured in Wilkes County.
