Rudolph Valentino, film actor had a miraculous escape from serious injury and possible death last night when his automobile wrecked and its occupants hurled out after the car had struck a railroad guide post while travelling at a high rate of speed. Valentino accompanied by a director and a chauffeur was driving to Hollywood. He was unable to negotiate the sharp turn near Santa Margarita and the car whirled around several times and crashed into the guide post. The three occupants were thrown out but none were injured. The actor left for Hollywood by bus two hours later none the worse for his experience.
