Synopsis of the play.

A newspaper reporter, Liz Walker, and her fiancé, a lawyer, returning from seeing an art film in a nearby town, are almost run off the road by a drunken driver. The reporter is sure she sees the drunken driver's car go off the road and into a deep canyon. They call the police, but when the police come and search the canyon, no car is found. The reporter discovers that other accidents have occurred along this stretch of highway and there have been many near misses. She is convinced that the highway department should make this part of the road safer, and she makes it her personal mission to investigate. She discovers that in an accident that happened a year earlier, witnesses say two cars went over the cliff; yet the police found only one. As the reporter drives her fiancé back to the scene of the accident to talk to one of the witnesses, a drunken driver drives them off the cliff. The witness, a Mrs. Hemingway, calls the police. The police search the canyon. This time the police find a car, but not from any recent accident. The car they find is the second car from the accident a year ago with two bodies in it. The identification on the bodies indicates that they were a girl reporter and her boyfriend, a lawyer.
