'^fiver Lvtky, ^Jnluckv Twice Truck Crash - BOWLING GREEN, O., Feb. (^,_Bruce Flick, a Muncie, Ind., u-uck driver, was unlucky, lucky, unlucky and lucky in that order today. A school bus and two automobiles stopped suddenly in front of I'^lick's truck on U. S. Route 25 today. Flick's truck skidded as he went to the road's shoulder, smacked a utility pole and draped a high tension line over his cab. That was unlucky. But, Flick came out of the cab unhurt. This was lucky. The truck engine still was running, so Flick walked back to turn it off. When he grabbed the door handle, 2,300 volts of electricity knocked him unconscious. That was unlucky. But, Harold Buhler, Portage, O., a motorist, knocked Flick loose with a shovel and Darrlll M. Mills, Bowling Green, revived Flick with artificial respiration. This was lucky. Flick, a driver for the Tarbet Trucking Co., Muncie, was released from a Bowling Green hospital a few hours later with only a burnei right hand and a bruise from the shovel.
