excerpt: It is thought to be the asteroid that was responsible for
sending the first recorded event in the USA of a meteor crashing to
Earth which hit and injured a human.
On November 30 1954 Ann Hodges of Sylacauga, Alabama, USA, was injured
by a falling meteorite.
Records of scientific tests done at the time show that, based on orbits
at the time 1685 Toro , which is also known as Earth's second satellite,
was calculated by experts to be the most likely origin of the meteor
which injured her.
