This unfortunate event was actually intentional. The photo is of a scene from ”The General,” a 1926 Buster Keaton movie set during the Civil War. The scene (the most expensive at the time) depicted a battle where a Union train plunged off the bridge over the Row River near Cottage Grove. The bridge was outside the Culp Creek Lumber Mill.

Had an uncle after night of drinking during the 1962 Columbus Day Storm in Oregon, at night hit a tree that had fallen across the highway at about 80 to 85 mph and it looked very similar to this. So my guess on how fast this car was going, about 85 mph. My uncle survived the crash, but both legs broken, along with ribs and other bones. Being drunk may have saved his life although I in no way condone drinking and driving. Oh ya, the car he was driving, a 1956 Buick.
