Tracking down first car crash in USA

Cars are bound to smack into each other.  We’ve heard that the first automobile collision in the USA happened when there were only four cars.  Two (reportedly) crashed into each other in St. Louis in 1896.

We’ve tried and tried to do fact checking on this on the Internets, but have failed to find any mention of such an accident.  Was the initial report bogus?  Is the information on the Internets hiding from us somewhere on the Internets?

To see photos of smashed up expensive cars in more recent accidents try Wrecked Exotics on-line at:

We’ll continue fact-finding.  If anyone has verifiable information about the first car vs.  car accident in the USA please post a comment.  Thank you.
