Report: Laura Bush in 1963 Car Wreck
By JIM VERTUNO, Associated Press Writer

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) - At 17, Laura Bush ran a stop sign and crashed into another car, killing her boyfriend who was driving it, according to an accident report released to The Associated Press on Wednesday.

Mrs. Bush is the wife of Republican presidential nominee-to-be George W. Bush (news - web sites), the Texas governor.

``It was a very tragic accident that deeply affected the families and was very painful for all involved, including the community at large,'' said her spokesman, Andrew Malcolm. ``To this day, Mrs. Bush remains unable to talk about it.''

Mrs. Bush did say in March, when asked at a campaign stop about the crash, ``I know this as an adult, and even more as a parent, it was crushing ... for the family involved and for me as well.''

According to the two-page accident report released Wednesday by the city of Midland, Laura Welch was driving her Chevrolet sedan on a clear night shortly after 8 p.m. on Nov. 6, 1963, when she drove into an intersection and struck a Corvair sedan driven by 17-year-old Michael Douglas.

Although previous news accounts have reported Douglas was thrown from the car and broke his neck, those details were not in the report.

The speed of Laura Bush's car was illegible on the report. The speed limit for the road was 55.

Neither driver was drinking, the police report said.

Laura Bush and her passenger, Judy Dykes, also 17, were taken to a hospital and treated for minor injuries, according to an accident account printed at the time in the Midland Reporter-Telegram.

The police report indicates no charges were filed. That section of the report was left blank.

``As far as we know, no charges were filed,'' said Midland city attorney Keith Stretcher. ``I don't think it's unusual that charges weren't filed.''

The police report was released after an open records request was submitted to Midland officials in March. City officials had declined to release the records because the victims were under 18.

Just looking to see if the claim had any merit to it. Didnt post it to get attacked by crazed internet commandos.
Link Posted: 2/13/2006 4:59:38 PM EDT
And a terrible accident that occurred 43 years ago and involved a 17 year old driver who made a driving mistake that cost the life of another is HUGE news now...or what?

Am I missing something here? Is this relevant to anything in our temporal universe?

I'm certain that Miz Bush will carry the burden of that to her grave and will ask for forgiveness as she no doubt has many, many times already.

I'm NOT so sure that many among us who have erred as she has are prepared to do the same. I wonder if you are? I wonder if Teddy Kennedy is?

If you have cogent responses...then please post them. Otherwise...go away!

apperntly the DU trolls have not figuered out that your wife's driving skills do not matter on how good of a president you are. Go try and fond more dirt, it will most likely be used to bury you.

Panties in a wad? Seemed like a dupe, googled the subject found two pieces of literature on the matter. Never heard anything of this..So i figured id post the only sensible piece i could find and see if anyone can verify the report.. Turns out it's true.

I cannot comprehend the depth of absolute hate and vulgarity that would drive a person to pick on Laura Bush. She is not just a nice lady, she is a nice First Lady.

What are you twelve or something? Anyone old enough to have been paying attention knew about that six years ago. Unless you spent the entire 2000 election cycle stoned or just too young to stay up for the evening news, I don't see how you could have escaped this story.

It was 43 years ago. It might have had merit then, but not now.

I'd never heard it before and I'm pretty tuned into politics. All I feel is sorry for her, that must have been a heck of a blow for a 17 year old girl to deal with. She is truly a great person, it's sad but sometimes it seems that great people are forged from terrible adversity. She's probalby one of the best things to happen to the White House in many, many years.

Yea

Laura Bush has an accident and somebody gets killed… scandal.

Ted Kennedy is drunk, commits vehicular manslaughter or worse, flees the scene, and then obstructs justice… and it is OK.

Guys, I'm about as far to the right as possible, and a Bush supporter. But, it is a true story. Mrs. Bush addressed the issue many years ago during an interview. It was an ACCIDENT, involving a young driver. Mrs. Bush is a shining example of what a first lady should be, and I emphasize the word LADY.

We know it's a true story. We just don't like some troll trying to start shit by bringing it up. It has been beaten to death the last 6 years, usually by liberal idiots. Liberal and idiot are kind of redundant, aren't they.

Wow. Some of you guys are waaaay too into this. Unless LB is your mom, you all should lighten up and don't take it so personal. And... it is a true story it seems. And yes it will come up from time to time. So.. take your pills and go back to bed. You'll feel better in the morning.
