Special to The Lebanon Enterprise
Time wasn’t there. That’s how Judy Ballard Platt describes that night 50 years ago when five young men crashed into a tree near her home.
“It was just like it was something that wasn’t happening,” she said. “It was like an eternity, like a slow motion-type thing.”
Platt, along with her father and brother Howard, went immediately to the wreck scene on that Monday night of May 25, 1964.
