Photograph taken for a newspaper owned by the Oklahoma Publishing Company. Caption: "Car Crash At Airport Is Probed. An 18year-old Oklahoma City boy was in Hillcrest hospital here Wednesday with a possible brain concussion after his car turned over on a taxiway of Tulakes airport about 11 p.m. Tuesday. He is Ronald Rogers of 5817 NW 46. Police said they want to talk further with the boy and his companions to see what they were doing at the airport. The accident wasn't reported to the police until 3 a.m. Wednesday. James Rogers, 17, brother of the injured driver, said he and Tom Hamit, 16, of 5937 N Hammond, were passengers in the car. He told officers they were driving on the runway when they saw another car appear. The youth said they drove toward the other car to tell the driver to stay away when they hit loose gravel and turned over. The two passengers carried the driver to a hanger and called their parents, they told B.E. Phillips and E.W. Stevenson investigators. The officers said they found on evidence of a second car."
