{Pallbearers for all are listed}.
 
Timothy Gilmore-A native of Thomas, Timothy Gilmore was a son of Mrs. Grace Shaffer Gilmore, Oakland and the late Timothy M. Gilmore. He spent most of his earlier youth in Crellin and and was a graduate of Oakland high school. During World War II, he served as a tank driver with the Army in Africa and Italy and was wounded in the chest. After the war, he served six years with the Maryland State Police, resigning last February to become a guard at the Allegany Ballistics lab at Pinto. He was a member of Victory Post, American Legion, and Potomac Fire Company. Besides his mother, he is survived by his wife, Mrs. Elizabeth Guy Gilmore, 122 Johnson Street, Westernport; three brothers, Harold Gilmore, Webster Springs, W. Va.; John W. Gilmore, Layfayette, Indiana, and Glenn Gilmore, Terra Alta and two sisters, Mrs. Margaret Kershetaky, Delano, Pa., and Mrs. Hazel Parsons, Hambleton, W. Va.
 
Richard D. Moran, son of Mrs. Sarah Moran and the late Edward S. Moran, former mayor of Westernport, was a native of the town and a graduate of Bruce high school. He was a manager of the Moran Trucking Company in which he was associated with his brothers. He was a member of Trinity Methodist Church and Potomac Fire company.

Besides his mother, he leaves four brothers, Marshall, Clyde, Thomas and Paul, all of Westernport, and two sisters, Mrs. Charles Floto, Cumberland, and Mrs. Oliver Long, Arlington, Va.

Police Version of Accident-The accident occurred about 4:52 Sunday morning. The time was established by a broken watch on the wrist of Richard Moran. Trooper First Class, A. M. Sploch, of the Maryland State Police, who investigated, said that Gilmore, driving Moran's 1951 hardtop convertible, had just rounded a bend and apparently was confused by the headlights of another vehicle parked along Gilmore's side of the road. Apparently thinking the recently relocated road lay to the right of the headlights, Gilmore swerved off the road onto a gravel shoulder. By the time he realized his mistake, it was too late to stop. The car skidded several hundred feet, careened back to the road, and smashed against the front of the parked car. Four of the victims were thrown from the car with only Earl Kalbaugh and Richard Michael still in the back seat. Sploch said all of the dead except Charles Kalbaugh died instantly. Witnesses said Kalbaugh called for help then crawled under a fence at the George M. Barton farm and died of internal injuries. Dr. H. V. Deming, deputy county medical examiner, said the others died of skull fractures, internal injuries and neck fractures. James. F. Thompson, the sixth occupant, was thrown from the vehicle and later was moved to Sacred Heart hospital, Cumberland, where he is recovering from his injuries.

Occupant of Parked Car Hurt.

Miss Joreetta Proudfoot, 21, of Rowlesburg, the only occupant of the parked car, sustained severe lacerations of the face and eyes when her head was thrown through the windshield by the impact. She told police she had been drowsy and thought she was dreaming when she saw the other car careening wildly towards her. Lewis H. Allwine, 24, of Highland, N. J., operator of the parked car, stated that he and his brother, Ernest, had pulled off to the left side of the road when they were flagged by Wilbur Fresh, a stranded motorist, of Akron, O., who had developed engine trouble. Gilmore's wife, Mrs. Betty Guy Gilmore, arrived at the scene of the accident about two hours later, unaware of her husband's death. Police said she was anxious over her husband's failure to return home and she stopped at the scene as officers were preparing to leave."
