      Real Bad Luck: 1960

      A young Caswell County man escaped serious injury from two accidents in the same evening over the October 1, 1960. weekend.

      James H. Dailey, 19, of Blanch, N.C. Rt. 1, sideswiped a railing on the bridge spanning Dan River at Milton on Route 62. He told officers that his car was forced into the bridge by an approaching vehicle. Around 123 feet of railing was damaged, some of it piercing the Dailey automobile. He escaped this crash with minor facial abrasions.

      However, the night was young.

      A short time later, while accompanying his uncle, John Slade Dailey of Yanceyville, back to the scene of the first crash, the automobile in which they were riding was struck head-on by a car driven by Robert Voight, demolishing both cars!

      The elder Dailey was treated by a local doctor, taken to Memorial Hospital in Danville and admitted. Voight was treated at Memorial Hospital and released.
