Laura Bush killed a guy..?

According to the police report, the incident was happened in 1963. When Laura Bush was 17 year old, she was driving her Chevrolet Sedan at a speed of 50 MPH, near a stop sign intersection point on state highway 349; Laura Bush’s car was hit to another car (during night at 8 pm). Michael Douglas was in the car which was hit by Laura Bush’s car. Douglas was thrown from the car and broke his neck and remained under treatment at Midland Memorial Hospital but could not survive. He died due to neck break injury. Laura Bush did not receive the news of the death until she was in the hospital getting treatment for her own wounds.

Michael Douglas was a good athlete and was nominated as the most popular boy at Laura’s high school.

There were many rumors regarding this accident. Some people say’s that Laura was drinking at the time she was driving the car. Later, police agencies clarified that she was not drunk. Some other states that Michael Douglas was Laura’s boyfriend.

At about 7:30 p.m. on November 6, 1963, Laura Welch [now Bush] left her family home at 2500 Humble Ave. in Midland, Texas, after some sort of incident. She headed north on Lanham St. and, after four blocks, turned right and stopped to pick up her girlfriend, Judy Dykes, at 2409 Neely Ave.

A couple of blocks east, Laura headed north again on North Garfield St. and headed out of town in the direction of her boyfriend's house.

Michael Dutton Douglas, also 17 and also a senior at Lee High School, left his home before Laura got into the vicinity. He left with his dad close behind, perhaps in pursuit.

At the north edge of town, Laura turned her big new Chevrolet Impala left again, heading east on farm-to-market (FM) road FM 868.

Meanwhile, Michael was leaving his home on Solomon Drive, heading east toward the highway, state route 349, a couple hundred yards away. From here, he would turn right, south, on 349 toward the fateful meeting at FM 868.

If Laura or Judy was watching, they could see Michael's car, or at least its headlights, on his street, Solomon Dr., which paralleled FM 868 and was the first street to the north.

Later, Laura reported she didn't even see his headlights even as he, headed south, approached the intersection with FM 868. In the 1000 yards to the intersection, he had time to accelerate to the legal speed limit of 65 mph.

The police report said it was dark but that, otherwise, driving conditions were ideal. It is easy to overlook a car in daytime, but on a dark night, it is hard not to notice the headlights of an approaching car, about the only light around, except for what one's headlights illuminate.

That night, Laura didn't see the headlights of Michael's Corvair. As she approached the state highway doing 50-something miles per hour, according to the police report, she didn't see the stop sign either, she said.

Michaels little Corvair was no match for Laura's new land barge. The collision swung his car around fully three-quarters of a turn and set it skidding 50 feet to the east, in the same direction as Laura's car was heading. more or less straight away from you.

Michael died of a broken neck, at the scene. His father, who was following him, arrived seconds after the wreck. Laura was unhurt and Judy had insignificant injuries.
