Description:

Photograph taken for a newspaper owned by the Oklahoma Publishing Company. Caption: "Another car and a telephone pole provided work for two wreckers at NE 28 and Lindsay. Four were injured. Four persons were injured, one critically -- in a two car smash-up at NE 28 and Lindsay, Monday. Undergoing emergency treatment for possible skull fracture and deep cuts on the face is 26 month- old Katherine Lucille Kemp, of 6100 N Shartel. Her mother, Mrs. Ethel Pearl Kemp, and driver of the car, Delbert Lee Floyd, 16, of 1426 NE 29, were treated for possible internal injuries. The fourth person injured was driver of the other car, 73 -year -old Ernest Gardner Swain, of 3134 NW 24, who suffered head injuries. Officer C.S. McLaughlin said the accident occurred when one car apparently failed to yield the right of way. The impact sent one auto careening into a telephone pole. The other spun out of control. It stopped facing in the opposite direction. The Floyd auto was traveling north on Lindsay, the Swain car west on NE 28. Officers said Swain would be given a citation for failure to yield the right of way. The Kemp baby apparently received head injuries when she was flung headlong into the dashboard. She suffered deep cuts about the head and face. Brain and plastic surgeons were called in by Mercy Hospital attendants."
