Shipman, R. Ronald 9 Apr 1917 - 1 Feb 1935 CCR 7 Feb 1935 p1
(Springfield Daily News) A basketball player was killed and six other persons were injured early Friday night in a highway accident involving a school bus and two automobiles. The fatal crash happened about a mile and one half southeast of Springfield on highway 65. Ronald Shipman, 17, son of Mr. and Mrs. Roy Shipman of Sparta, and a senior in the Sparta high school, was killed. Howard H. Baskette, 27, principal of the Sparta high school and basketball coach, suffered a severe head injury, dangerous shock and body bruises. Others less seriously injured are Mrs. J.B. Baker, 999 North Benton Avenue, who suffered leg lacerations, J.B. Baker, 999 North Benton Avenue, arm and hand cuts; Dan Pickering, 1406 North Broadway Avenue, head lacerations; Chester Morris, 1371 North Grant Avenue, cuts about the face; Opal Rathbone, Sparta, a broken nose, and Merle Robertson, Sparta, a back injury. Twenty-one students of the Sparta school were in the bus, en route to a basketball tournament at the YMCA there. Baker, driving east said that a car passed him about 150 yards from the scene of the accident. The car belonged to F.S. Kerr of Seymour. The driver was Ern Gorman, also of Seymour. Soon after the Chevrolet passed him, Baker said, he saw sparks as though two pieces of steel had clashed together. Realizing there had been a collision, he said, he attempted to stop and pull from the highway. The bus its wheels jammed by the first crash, careened across the highway, smashing into the side of Baker’s car. The two of them then hurtled into the ditch, the bus overturning. The Chevrolet never left the road but spun around on the highway. Shipman and Baskette were pinned beneath the bus. The youth, a substitute, on the high school basketball team, died in an Alma Lohmeyer ambulance on the way to Springfield Baptist hospital. Jack Smith, another student in the Sparta school, said that he was sitting next to Baskette and Shipman, who were side by side. He declared that when the bus turned over and he put his hand down to lift himself he felt the hand of either Baskette or Shipman. They had been sitting beside a door. The bus was owned and driven by Ben Stone of Route 8, Sparta. Kerr, who was asleep in the rear seat of his car, and Gorman, escaped injury and continued to Seymour last night. Mr. and Mrs. Baker, Pickering and Morris were dismissed after treatment at Springfield Baptist hospital. Dr. Charles A. George, county coroner, said that an inquest probably will be held at the Alma Lohmeyer funeral home. Shipman’s younger brother, Wallace was in the bus sitting immediately behind Ronald. The accident was about 7 o’clock, Another car, driven by Bob Tharp of Springfield, rammed into the rear of a car which had stopped at the scene of the accident but no one was injured and damage was slight.
