Summary

Description
English: This 1951 photo shows what happened after the Texas Highway Department closed a bridge on the Canadian River near Pampa that had become too dangerous to use. Drivers who took their chances crossing the dry river bed didn’t always make it and had to be hauled out by tow trucks.
