David Milton Wright Jr., 18, of Temperance House, was instantly killed in the Pleasantville accident at 9 o'clock Monday night, and Miss Katherine Dunham, 25, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Edward Dunham, of Pleasantville, suffered a fractured skull, broken jaws and internal injuries which caused her death less than two hours later in the Titusville Hospital.
Cecil Dunham, 22, brother of Katherine and driver of the car, had several teeth knocked out and suffered lacerations and bruises and was treated at the home of his parents, South Main Street, Pleasantville."... (article details other accident - then continues...)
"Three Crushed in Coupe." (Printed under first article)
"The three young people involved in the Pleasantville crash were crushed inside the small coupe as the care left the road, struck a pole and overturned. When the right front tire blew out, Dunham, who stated that he was not driving at an excessive rate of speed, had evidently kept the car under control for several feet, but struck the pole at the side of the highway at State and School Streets, with sufficient force to break it off and to knock the car back onto the highway where it overturned and rested on it's top.
A bar was secured from a nearby garage to pry the doors open, and the Wright youth was dead when taken from the machine, while Miss Dunhan was unconscious. Dr. J. I. Zerbe, Venango County coroner, and Highway Patrolman, C. R. McFarland, of the Franklin substation, conducted an investigation, and it was decided that no inquest would be necessary, in as much as the deaths had apparently resulted from an unavoidable accident.
David Wright was born near Pleasantville on July 27, 1917, and had always lived in that vicinity. Besides his father, David Milton Wright, he leaves two brothers, Henry Archie and Lloyd Arthur Wright, at home, and three sisters, Mrs. Lulu McClelland, of Rouseville, Mrs. George Chapman, of Neilltown, and Mrs. Clara Merriman, whose husband is a minister, and her present residence in unknown to Mr. Wright.
Miss Dunham was a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Elmer Dunham and was born in Pleasantvill on Oct. 26, 1910. She attended the borough schools and was popular in a wide circle in the community. She lived at home and besides the parents leaves three brothers, Cecil Dunham, who was driving the ill-fated car, Roscoe and Clyde Dunham, and two sisters, Miss Marian Dunham, at home, and Mrs. Mildred Yettke, of Elmira, N.Y."...
