James Chesmore jr., driver of an auto which crashed into a Frisco train Thursday near Warwick, died shortly after noon in an Oklahoma City Hospital. WARWICK -- A car-train crash just west of this Lincoln County town Thursday morning sent a 28-year-old Cushing man to McBride Clinic in Oklahoma City in "critical" condition. An automobile driven by James Chesmore jr. hit a single unit Frisco Railway work train rushing from Tulsa (another Picture, Page 17.) to near Jones where another Frisco train had derailed earlier. Ten cars of a Memphis bound Frisco freight train jumped the track at 6:25 a.m. Thursday two miles northeast of Jones. No injuries were reported in the derailment. The work train was delayed by the crash at Warwick. The derailment halted use of the Oklahoma City-to-Tulsa portion of the track. The wreckage was expected to be cleared by late afternoon."
