Funny historical fact.

I ran across it in an article of Churchill biographies

https://www.newyorker.com/magazine/2...0/finest-hours

and found a mention of it in the NYT from 1931:

"CHURCHILL INJURED BY AUTO IN 5TH AV."

Winston Churchill car accident that could have changed history... - RareNewspapers.com

Close call.

Sir Winston Churchill has been through worse. He was a soldier in the British Army. He seen action in the colonies, and he was at the front lines in trench warfare during WW1
