Re: How Nashville has changed since Jim Reeves' day
One addition to Larry's letter: When it began to get dark I landed and called Linda Price (Ray Price's wife) who had phone numbers for many country music people and asked her to send people to the search area. As the word spread two men crashed and possibly still alive needing medical attention, the ground search began. I then accompanied THP Officer Truman Clark in his helicopter down to the area I had been searching. As we started north, east of and parrellel to Franklin Rd we saw many people WEST of Franklin Rd. Truman cheched with his dispatcher and was told the crash was near Radnor Lake and we should look there. This was only three hours after the initial reports, so the cover up had already started even though the victims might have been alive which was a heartless decision on someone's part under the circumstances. Circumstances later proved they died instantly so nothing was said, but it just proves something had to be cosidered awfully important to disregard possibility of injured victims needing medical attention.
