Car hits
curb, rolls
Wet roads and accelerating
into a turn were blamed for a
vehicle overturning on River
Road North about noon on
Wednesday, Nov. 22.
The 17-year-old driver of
a 1999 Toyota 4Runner was
turning south onto River
Road North from Manzanita
Street Northeast when she
accelerated as she turned and
the rear tires of the vehicle lost
traction. Investigating offi cer
Andrew McCowan found
that the rear passenger wheel
slammed into the curb and
caused the vehicle to overturn.
The driver complained
of pain but declined medical
treatment.

In Montgomery, Alabama, Rosa Parks is jailed for
refusing to give up her seat on a public bus to a white
man, a violation of the city’s racial segregation laws. The
successful Montgomery Bus Boycott, organized by a young
Baptist minister named Martin Luther King, Jr., followed
Park’s historic act of civil disobedience.
