A Guy Died When He Crashed His 1915 Ford Model T
And now, a news story that sounds like it’s from 95 years ago. Last week, a man died when he crashed his car . . . a 1915 FORD MODEL T. 64-year-old Kenneth Meek of St. Clair, Missouri owned the vintage Model T. He and his wife, 68-year-old Margaret Meek, have been driving around, participating in a multi-state tour for a Model T club. When Kenneth was driving near Rochester, Minnesota, a WHEEL FELL OFF the car. He lost control, the car flipped over and rolled twice, and both Kenneth and Margaret were thrown onto the highway. Needless to say, the Model T didn’t have airbags. It didn’t have seatbelts either . . . you’re allowed to drive without seatbelts as long as the car was manufactured before 1964. It didn’t even have a roof. Kenneth died from the injuries he suffered in the crash. Margaret was injured too, but her injuries weren’t critical.
