INJURED WOMAN FOUND IN BARN Fatal Crash Goes Unnoticed: Edmond- A Guthrie woman was killed Friday and her dazed companion spent the bitterly cold night in a cattle barn after their auto plunged into a creek bed northwest of Edmond, it was learned Saturday. The victim was identified as Mrs. Sarah Mundell, 27. Her passenger, Mrs. Beatrice White, 26, also of Guthrie, suffered cold exposure and minor injuries. The accident occurred sometime Friday night but was not discovered until 4;15 p.m. Saturday. When rescuers approached the accident scene, Mrs. White called to them from the doorway of the barn. "She was awfully cold, but she was rational and didn't seem badly injured," said Edmond Police Chief Ray Rich. Mrs. White told officers she crawled from the wrecked car toward the lights of a farmhouse 300 yards distant. "I couldn't make it to the house, so I went into the barn to rest," she related. The R. D. Neal farm family told officers they did not hear the accident and were away from home much of the day Saturday. They were unaware that the injured woman was in the barn. She was being treated at Edmond Memorial Hospital. The death car hurtled 75 feet through the air."

Description: Photograph taken for a newspaper owned by the Oklahoma Publishing Company. Caption: "Wreckage of a Benson Gyrocopter in which an Oklahoma City swimming pool firm executive plunged to his death is shown where it crashed near Cimarron Field. A 38-year-old Oklahoma City business executive plunged to his death Tuesday near Cimarron Field in Canadian County in a gyrocopter he built himself. Witnesses said Robert D. Paddock, a partner with his brother, John, in Paddock Pools, was killed when his Experimental helicopter-type aircraft went into a steep dive, causing the rotor blade to disintegrate. The craft plummeted into a field just north of the Cimarron runway two miles south of Banner. A spokesman for Paddock's family at the home, 4801 N Byron Place, said Paddock had been constructing the Benson Gyrocopter craft for several weeks as a hobby. The spokesman said Tuesday's fatal flight was one of the first, if not the first, that Paddock had made in the ill-fated plane, The Oklahoma Highway Patrol reported the accident occurred at 6:05 p.m. after the one-man craft had made a circle over the airport."

Description: Photograph taken for a newspaper owned by the Oklahoma Publishing Company. Caption: "NORMAN-An Oklahoma Army National Guard training helicopter crashed about 1:30 p.m. Saturday on Norman's southeast edge, destroying the two-man craft but apparently leaving its only occupant with minor injuries. The pilot, 31-year-old Huston C. Sansome, Walters, was taken to Norman Municipal Hospital and later transferred to Tinker Air Force Base Hospital where he was listed in good condition. The shattered helicopter came to rest in an open field approximately 500 feet southeast of the intersection of 24th Avenue Southeast and Lindsay Street. An unidentified boy reportedly spotted the downed craft and notified Army National Guard officials. Capt. Jim Haney of the Guard said Sansome had been flying an OH-23B observation helicopter as part of a weekend training session based at Max Westheimer Field in Norman." We don't have any idea what caused the crash,"Haney said, " but we will begin an investigation just as soon as Sansome is allowed to talk to investigators." A national guardsman at the scene said the only clue available was that the tail rotor apparently came off before impact. The force of the crash shattered the cockpit's protective shield, tore off the craft's tail and twisted off one main rotor. Pieces of machinery and metal were scattered over 300 feet on either side of the wreckage. Haney said the pilot apparently did not have time to radio for help before the crash and there were no witnesses. An Oklahoma Highway Patrol unit was dispatched to restrain curious onlookers until the wreckage could be taken to Westheimer Field."
