Herb: nice pic. I live about 40 miles north of Shelby! Somehow I missed that accident in the papers. Darn! And I just noticed on your profile pic, that's (I'm almost sure) the SAME engine that went through my area back last May in which I was able to get one lucky shot of it at the crossing with my 1912 Roadster Pickup that I had just recently bought. Talk about coincidence.

Also, wonder what car this is, it's not a T for sure. Looks like RH drive too. Hopefully no one was seriously injured.

Maxwell. Look at the radiator. One of the bigger, four-cylinder ones. Most of the survivors seem to be two-cylinder

Yes, those are Westchester #6 cowl lamps so it is a Maxwell - probably a '08. I shudder to think what happened to the driver by the looks of that bent-nearly-verticle steering column. I have the same thought when driving the Model T about that 'spear' with the acorn nut aimed directly at my heart.

Interesting that all three guys are standing with their hands folded as if in prayer. Might have known the driver or been riding in the car.

Such a major wreck for low speed limit days. That was no low mph collision with just another car..Even T-boned on at 20mph..I bet he pulled in front /across the path of a passing Electric trolley car..They were heavy and would be unyielding . Notice the street is brick paved,,No small town dirt road..Most likely tracks are just out of view.
