1950s witness statement following car accident

Found in an old family archive. A very detailed little sketch diagram:

Linked to six Word Saturday at Debbie’s here


  1. A reliable witness indeed!

  2. She must have been an insurance adjuster’s dream. Such precise recollection. Hope it turned out well for her.

  3. Amy

    1950s witness statement… precious documen.

  4. This must be a first for 6 words, Sue!

  5. Amazing what one can find in the attic (or similar)! 😉

    • Sue

      Absolutely, this was at a friends mother’s house. When I cleared my own attic when I moved I found an absolute treasure trove and made a good number of Still Life images

  6. Fascinating – and what a wonderful 6WS

  7. I love this, such precious drawings and as you say a bit of humour. I wonder how old she was. A great find 🙂

  8. That’s really interesting, Sue!

  9. Tom

    Fascinating detailed piece of history, Sue.

  10. I can remember filling in similar reports in the 1960s. I smiled at the description of a ‘Utility Car’. 🙂
    Best wishes, Pete.

      What do you think that would have been…electricity or water or some such?

      • I think we would call it a van or a pickup now, Sue. This from the web.

        ‘A utility vehicle is a vehicle, generally motorized, that is designed to carry out a specific task with more efficacy than a passenger vehicle. It sometimes refers to a small truck with low sides.’

      • Sue

        Ah, OK! Learn something every day

  11. Ahh! I feel quite an indignation. How rude!

  12. oh my word Sue, what a dramatic tale for the weekend
