In 1954, Ann Hodges from Oak Grove, Alabama, became the first person in recorded history to be struck by what?

Answer:

A METEORITE

On November 30, 1954, a meteorite crashed through the roof of a home in a then-unincorporated area near Sylacauga, Talladega County, striking resident Ann E. Hodges (1923-1972). The area was later incorporated as the town of Oak Grove. Hodges was the first person ever to have been injured by a meteorite, and the event caused a nationwide media sensation and a year-long legal battle.
