Charles Mack, 23, Guthrie, minor injuries. Miller and Harrison were to be transferred to Tinker base hospital and Barber was moved to Veterans Administration hospital here. All five men were thrown out of the car in the smashup about 7:30a.m. six miles northeast of Oklahoma City. Patrolman Weldon Wood said the car was traveling north on the cutoff and was coming out of a slight curve when it was ran off the highway. The vehicle, which was demolished, skidded 428 feet and rolled another 108 feet, overturning six or seven times, Wood said. The highway patrol said the accident is still under investigation."
