(Testimony of Joe E. Murphy)
Mr. BALL. And you have drawn a position there as to where you were standing, is that right?
Mr. BALL. All right, mark the place where you were standing as Position 1, using an "X".
Mr. BALL. And your three-wheeler was beside you?
Mr. MURPHY. Yes; there were two more about---oh, a 100 feet south of to slow traffic or to stop traffic whenever the motorcade entered the Stemmons Freeway north entrance.
Mr. BALL. And as the motorcade came west on Elm, did they stop traffic on Stemmons freeway?
Mr. MURPHY. Yes, their main job was to slow it and let the officers farther down the freeway---they would stop it, but traffic approaches pretty fast and they were to slow traffic and let the officers then stop it. They did---they---they stepped into and were slowing the traffic as the motorcade came under that railroad overpass.
Mr. BALL. Were there any people standing on the overpass over Elm, on the Stemmons Freeway overpass over Elm, as the motorcade came down?
Mr. MURPHY. No; there was no one standing there prior to the arrival of the motorcade or after the motorcade arrived.
Mr. BALL. Now, let's go to the railroad overpass, and first of all, as you turned west on Elm from Houston, what is the first overpass that you encounter?
Mr. MURPHY. There is a railroad overpass-all of the trains entering and leaving the Union Station cross over that overpass.
Mr. BALL. Can you mark their positions, approximately, as you saw them before the motorcade arrived?
Mr. BALL. All right, mark the position of the officer on the west side as Position (4), and the one on the east side as Position (5).
(The Witness Murphy marked the diagram as requested by Counsel Ball.)
