I'm looking for information concerning the death of LeRoy Long, from Wasco, Or. I believe it was late 1965?

Chuck, Leroy Long of Wasco, Oregon died instantly June 9th, 1966 in a car accident on hwy 84, west of Celilo. My brother David Jacobsen was a passenger and died later that day. There were two survivors of the accident; a class mate and the other was a hitch hiker, neither of which I knew and unfortunately I don't have their names.
Good luck with your search, let me know if I can help. Carol Olmstead

I'm looking for a picture of a high scalier that was working on the new highway west of The Dalles in the 1950's.
