A gay crowd of boys and girls—eight of them—jammed into and hanging on a light coupe, were victims of Christian county’s worst automobile catastrophe Sunday afternoon. One boy was killed instantly, another died enroute to a Springfield hospital, and a third is in a hospital, both legs amputated and physicians predicting he cannot live. The dead: Gene Archer, about 24, Ava mechanic and son of Walt Archer. Kermit Swearingen, about 24, farmer who lived 15 miles south of Ava, the son of Jake Swearingen. Archer and Swearingen, with six others, were riding in or on Archer’s coupe when it sideswiped a small truck driven by Arlie Mitchell, of near Garrison, on Highway 125 two miles east of Garrison at 5 o’clock Sunday afternoon. Archer, who was driving, was instantly killed. His head and chest crushed against the windshield and steering wheel. Swearingen, who suffered a skull fracture and compound fractures of both legs when he was thrown from the left running board of the coupe, died in an ambulance enroute to a hospital in Springfield. Most seriously injured was Glen Thompson, who was riding on the right running board of the coupe. Thompson’s right foot was amputated in Springfield Baptist hospital and his left leg was completely crushed and was amputated Tuesday in an attempt to save his life. He may not live. Dalton Keilbarth, 22, of near Good Hope, son of John Keilbarth, who was also riding on the right running board of the coupe, said the eight persons in the car had been to a baseball game at Garrison between the Chadwick town team and a team from the Little Beaver community, and that Archer had offered to take them all home after the game, which was won by Chadwick 10 to 3. Keilbarth said Imogene Nelson, 17, and her sister, Lodema, 18, of near Good Hope, and Quentin Lethco, about 19, of Merritt, were all riding inside the coupe, with Archer at the wheel. Keilbarth said Archer had a “jug of bootleg whiskey” and that Archer “and the other boys” had been drinking during the afternoon. Keilbarth said he had tried to persuade Archer to stop drinking before they left the baseball park. The Archer car was going east when it met the Mitchell truck, headed west. Keilbarth said the coupe was traveling about 55 or 60 miles an hour when it struck the truck. The coupe rolled over several times and crashed into a ditch seven feet deep on the north side of the road. Mitchell and his wife, riding with him, escaped injury. Their truck was badly damaged, but did not overturn. The injured were all taken to Springfield Baptist hospital in a Klepper ambulance. The Nelson girls, hospital attendants said, were not badly injured, both receiving cuts and bruises. Miss Owens, also, escaped serious injury. Keilbrath has cuts and bruises on his back and head, and his right great toe was amputated. Lethco’s injuries were so slight that he was not taken to a hospital. He had played left field for the Little Beaver team in the ball game.
