Tom Mix in his 1921 Cord

Monday, 24th of October, 2005 @ 2:00pm

Silent film star Tom Mix was killed in a freak auto accident on 12 October 1940. Famous for his high-living ways—including his love of fast cars—Mix was speeding across Arizona in his 1921 yellow Cord when he unexpectedly encountered a bridge under construction. Braking and swerving sharply, Mix dislodged a heavy suitcase from the luggage rack behind him. The suitcase crashed forward into Mix’s head, killing him.imageimage
