Survival of the Screw-ups
by Bonnie Libhart
A talk show host in Jonesboro, Arkansas, Bonnie Libhart became the first woman ever to obtain a press pass to the pits of the Indianapolis 500. But just as the race began, the Indy pace car went out of control, skidding through the crew area. It toppled the press box, dumping her and her mate, Tony, and the other reporters and cameramen onto its hood in a splintering, head-cracking crash.
