Carolina Playmakers Bus Crash, 1925

Nearing the end of their state tour in 1925, the Carolina Playmakers, traveling in their “Playmakers Special,” narrowly escaped a disastrous crash on the road near Valdez, between Morganton and Hickory. Nobody was hurt, and after the bus was pulled back onto the road by a Standard Oil truck (see the photo below), the troupe made it on time to their performance that night in Greensboro.
