Description: Photograph taken for a story in the Oklahoma City Times newspaper. Caption: "Officers J. W. Rankin, left, and R. D. Brokaw check wrecked convertible. Four persons were injured, two seriously, early Tuesday when a 19 year old sailor swerved his convertible to avoid a head-on collision with a car approaching on the wrong side of the road in the 400 block SW 59. The convertible swerved off the road, into a plowed field and crashes into a ditch. The driver said the other car did not stop. Taken to Mercy hospital were the driver, Delano Hubert Smith, 19, a sailor from Mustang; Cathleen Jane Gallagher, 18, of 3805 NW 14, Logan Ellis Dunbar, 21, Mustang, and Barbara Ann Goodner, 19, of 4717 NW 11. Most seriously injured was Miss Gallagher, who was riding in the front seat of the convertible. She suffered possible fractures of her jaw and left leg and a head injury. Officers J. W. Rankin and R. D. Brokaw said Dunbar was thrown from the back into the front seat and his head struck the windshield when the car smashed into the ditch. He received severe head cuts. Smith and Miss Goodner both suffered minor bruises."
