#14 Charred by Martians


The young doctor was driving home after visiting a patient when he heard a humming noise overhead. Looking, up, the medic was terrified at the sight of a flying saucer tailing him. Curiously the Martians seemed to be studying him and his car. As the doctor pressed his foot down harder on the gas pedal, the speedometer pushed past the 70-mile-per-hour mark. The saucer kept a steady pace overhead. Trying to outrace the Martians was useless but the doctor further accelerated his speed to over 100 m.p.h. Powerful atomic beams flashed out of the saucer and glowed on the car. The rear of the auto burst into flames, and the car overturned into a ditch.
