Evanston, WY Auto Crashes Into River, Nov 1952
FIVE ARE KILLED BY DRIVING CAR INTO RIVER.
Evanston, Wyo. -- (AP) -- Three boxers, their manager and trainer, all from Denver, were killed Tuesday when they lost their way, took a side road and drove their car into Bear River.
Sheriff Frank Narramore said the vehicle landed upside down in the shallow stream. He said the men were not drowned but, unable to break out of the closed car, died of exposure.
Only one man of six in the car -- returning to Denver after performing Monday night in Salt Lake City -- survived. He was JIMMY McDONALD, listed in fair condition.
Narramore named these as dead:
JOE LEVINSON, 47, the manager.
JAMES HOWARD BEALER, 44, the trainer.
GEORGE HARVEY, 21, a fighter.
GARFIELD SISNEROS, 28, a fighter.
FREEMAN EDWARD OOFTON, 21, a fighter.
