This is a wonderful photograph of a terrible thing: 1960’s fifth traffic fatality in Osceola County. It tells the awful story so well.

At the same time, reporters always hope we don’t have to cover tragic events like this. The camera and notebook can provide some psychological space, but no one in this newsroom hasn’t come back to the office in tears from some event or interview at least once.

Following are photos of all three cars involved in the incident.
