The Face in the Wall

Terre haute, Indiana

Young men and fast cars are nothing new in any town. Fruitridge Ave in Terre Haute has seen it's share of late night competitions. One has become legend. As two cars challenged each other one hot summer night, a nameless young man blew a tire near Hulman Street. His car spun out of control and crashed into a huge brick wall, the boy was thrown through his windshield and smashed face first into a wall. For many years after the accident, some would say they could see the face of the youth staring out of the rock where his life ended. Sadly, the wall has been torn down but the legend continues.
