1923 Model T Ford convertible skids off road, killing couple

Posted: Updated:
 MANHEIM, Pa. (AP) - Police say a 1923 Model T Ford convertible has skidded off the roadway and flipped over, killing a Pennsylvania couple.

Manheim Borough police say 70-year-old Ralph Cramer and his 59-year-old wife, Lynn, died in the Sunday night wreck.

Police Chief Joseph Stauffer says the vehicle had been rebuilt or restored, with new elements.

He says the couple from Mount Joy died of traumatic injuries. The Model T had seatbelts, but it's unclear if they were worn. The top was down when the wreck occurred.

Stauffer says there's evidence the vehicle started to skid at a slight left turn, then went off the road and hit an embankment near a barn. The Model T went airborne and flipped over.
