Photograph taken for a newspaper owned by the Oklahoma Publishing Company. Caption: "STATE TRAFFIC TOLL 1972 to date: 705 1971 to date: 692 1972 under 21: 229 An Edmond man was killed Sunday afternoon when he was run over by the truck he was towing with his tractor, and the names of two other persons were added to the traffic death list from separate accidents. Dead are: ROBERT LEE HART, 32, Edmond. DON REESE, 21, Woodward. MRS. ROSE GRANT, 34, of 1825 Cranapple Court. Hart was towing a two-ton dump truck north on NW 178 about one-fifth of a mile east of MacArthur when the truck began to overtake him on a downgrade, according to the Highway Patrol. Officers said he attempted to take evasive action and flipped the tractor over into a ditch and was run over when the truck was pulled into the ditch. Reese died of injuries he sustained when thrown from a car that went out of control six miles west of Woodward on SH 15. The patrol said Reese was a passenger in the car driven by 15-year-old youth, and they reported another passenger, Dixie Whitson, 17, Woodward, is in serious condition at a Woodward hospital. The patrol said Mrs. Grant died of injuries received when her car crashed through a guard rail on I-40 and fell 141 feet to Virgina Ave."
