NotesTitle provided by staff.
In the accident, apparently the vehicle driven by Mr. H. L. Sveinson went onto the shoulder of the road. Mr. Sveinson overcorrected and lost control of his vehicle which then swung across the road and into the path of the oncoming jeep driven by the McCanns. Also involved in the accident was the eye witness Robert Myers who was unable to stop in time and ran into the two vehicles.
