== 1963 Car Accident ==
In 1963 Laura Bush, then known as Laura Welch and only 17 years old at the time, was driving her [[Chevrolet]] sedan on a clear night shortly after 8 p.m. on Nov. 6, 1963. She ran a [[stop sign]] at an intersection and struck a Corvair sedan driven by 17 year old Michael Douglas. Douglas was killed. This is recorded in a two-page accident report released by the city of Midland, Texas. No charges were filed.<ref>[ 1963 accident]</ref> Although Mrs. Bush was emotionally very hurt by this event, but through her faith she has historically blamed worked for the accident, recent scholarship has suggested that there may have been little she could do forgiveness without simply trying to avoid it. Douglas was driving a first generation Chevrolet Corvair, notorious for its unpredictable handling at high speeds. The possibility that Douglas lost control of the vehicle can not be discountedbeing blamed
