Car Crashes into Building on Mashell, 1960

Car Wreck 1960 1
Car Wreck 1960 1

This wreck took place March, 1960. Did some damage to the Dodge building on Mashell Ave., which I believe was the old Sears building across kitty corner from the bank. It looks like it involved two cars.

If you have details about this accident, please share.

I do like in the bottom corner of the first shot is a flier for a dance coming up at the Ohop Grange on April 2.
