  I have just received confirmation that Leo Loudenslager was seriously
injured in an accident Tuesday evening.  Leo was riding his motorcycle from
his home to the store, approximately a mile and a half away, when an
automobile driver crossed  the centerline colliding headon with Leo's cycle.

Leo is in the Vanderbilt Medical Center Trauma Unit where the staff worked
through the night to stabilize him. He has been unconscious most of the
time since the accident, but did awaken for a time this morning and
appeared to recognize his daughter, Carolyn. 

Leo flew the Oklahoma City air show last weekend and was scheduled to be in
Guthrie, OK at Zivko Aeronautics this weekend for work on his new airplane.

No other information is known at this time. Big B and Little T have driven
up from Florida and are at Leo's residence now.
