HIT-RUN DRIVER INJURES MAIDEN

Vanera Shaw, 15, Hurled 50 Feet -- Autoist Not on Highway, Report.

COMPANION NOT HURT

License Number of Machine Obtained -- Man Fled, but Three Hours Later Reports

Struck by a hit-and-run driver at Crestline and Rich about 8:30 last evening, Miss Vanera Shaw, 15, E1623 Garland avenue, student at Rogers high school, was knocked 50 feet, but fortunately escaped without broken bones.

With a friend, Sylvia Windel, E1719 Empire, she was walking north on Crestline. They were off the paved street and walking in a path alongside as there is no sidewalk there, when suddenly the car rushed up behind them, struck Miss Shaw and whirled Miss Windel, who had her arm about Miss Shaw, completely around by the impact.

"It threw Valera at least 50 feet out into a field," Miss Windel said at the emergency hospital. "I ran and picked her up and the driver of the car, who had stopped, then came back and asked how she was. He spoke with a very thick tongue. Seeing she was not dead, he ran and got into his car and started to drive off, leaving a girl who was with him standing in the road. She had to run after him to get him to stop for her."

Miss Shaw suffered severe abrasions of the head, hands, feet and one thigh. An hour later Arthur Westbrook, 35, telephoned to the police station to report the accident. At 11:20 he appeared, explaining he had ascertained the girl was not badly injured and wanted to take a young woman companion home before he reported. He was booked, but not held by the police, who said he had not been drinking.

The number of his car had been obtained by the police.

Richard Charles Shaw-MacMillan

M, b. 15 November 1925, d. 21 April 2000
     Richard Charles Shaw-MacMillan was born on 15 November 1925 at Pasadena, Los Angeles Co., CA. He was the son of Clarence Zeke Shaw and Lorrena Bagley Smith. Richard Charles Shaw-MacMillan married Barbara Ann Franks, daughter of Roy Lee Franks and Ann Edna Runstadler, on 1 October 1949 at San Francisco Co., CA. Richard Charles Shaw-MacMillan was graduated; University of California, Berkeley, Law School. Occupation: Owner, Quality Oldsmobile-Cadillac in 1970. He died on 21 April 2000 at Reno, Washoe Co., NV, at age 74 BIOGRAPHY - Richard Charles McMillan by Barbara Ann Franks MacMillan; Posted 04 Sep 2011 by Patricia MacMillan01; (Ancestry.com)

Richard Charles Shaw was born on 15 November 1925, in Pasadena, California, three months after the death of his father, Clarence Zeke Shaw, a stock broker, from an automobile accident. His Mother, Lorrena Bagley Shaw, remarried on 5 September 1931, to Clifford James MacMillan, an Attorney from San Francisco. They had another son Donald Roger MacMillan and Richard dearly loved his younger brother. Clifford was a wonderful father and Richard loved him very much. Richard was not told he was adopted and did not remember the time before Lorrena married Clifford. Richard attended Junior High School at Aptos Junior high school and that is where I first met him, we were acquaintances and then we attended different High Schools and lost touch for awhile. When World War II started he was in high school and in danger of being drafted so he took extra courses and finished high school in 3 1/2 years so he could complete at least a semester of college (City College in San Francisco), which he did. It was at this time he found out about the adoption as he needed a copy of his birth certificate for the military. Clifford adopted him and a new birth certificate was issued. Richard and his parents chose to keep this a secret and I was the only one outside of Lorrena and Cliff who knew about the adoption. The rest of the family, his brother, and our children, and grandchildren did not find out until the time of his death.
He loved flying and tried to enlist in the Air Corps, but his eyes did not pass the physical and he was drafted into the Navy. Because of his hobby of photography, he was selected to go to Photography School and then was selected as Air Crew and went to Air Gunnery School (training in PV-2 Ventures). Richard ended up stationed on Okinawa where he photographed and mapped the coast of Japan while flying in B-29s prior to the coming invasion. During his free time, he explored the island, discovered many Japanese relics and rifles. He became a dealer in these rifles and made money which he sent home to buy a car after the war. Unfortunately exploring was hazardous. Two of his friends came upon some kind of memorial when they went to look at it there was an explosion and they were killed. It had been booby trapped. During the time he was on Okinawa a huge Typhoon blew in and destroyed practically everything to include the photo lab, mess hall, officers quarters, etc. When the storm started getting really bad he and his tent mates scrounged lumber and reinforced their tent. When the storm abated their's was one of only three tents left standing. Needless to say they had a lot of "friends" needing shelter in their tent. Shortly after the typhoon he was discharged and returned home.
He enrolled in San Francisco Junior College where we met again in an economics class and started talking. I was pinned to a fraternity brother of his and he was dating a Navy Wave. After a few encounters it was incendiary and neither of us looked at anyone else again. We went on to UC Berkeley and he worked nights at Eastman Kodak to earn money for my engagement ring. We graduated in 1949 and married 1 October 1949. At this time we moved to Eureka where Richard and his grandfather started a lumber mill on his grandfather's ranch. Eventually the mill was set on fire by a disgruntled former employee after which we returned to San Francisco where Richard went to law school and I worked for Social Services to help put him through school. During summer vacations Richard worked on VanNess Avenue selling cars which he loved. When he graduated, I was pregnant so he went to work for General Motors as a Chevrolet District Manager, deciding his true love was cars and not the law. Unfortunately, our son was stillborn. We were then blessed with two healthy children Bonnie Ann and two years later Jeffrey James. Richard bought his own dealership which he named Quality Cadillac Olds, in Visalia, Tulare County, California.
We led a busy and very happy life. We did a lot of boating and travelled this country and across Canada in our RV with our children and many times with his widowed Mother Lorrena (ReMe). He semi-retired in 1989, leasing out the dealership and eventually selling the land it was built on to Toys R Us and Olive Garden. He retained part of the lot where he built an office building which he leased out. With our daughter Bonnie working as his office manager he eventually bought an additional office building in Reno, Nevada. We decided to travel and managed to see a great deal of the world to include Japan, Europe, parts of Asia, Africa and Egypt, and others. We went to Katmandu and saw Mt. Everest - Richard flew around the mountain in a contraption I refused to get into.
Richard was a wonderful man, husband and father. He was a successful business man who did more than just provide for his family. There was never a dull moment with all his varied interests; boats, planes, photography, guns, stereo sound, the stock market and politics. He was a man who couldn't sit still. The praise I hear most from his friends is, “he was a fine gentleman." His family misses him.
