On August 26, 1965 at 10:40 p.m. firemen were sent to Rt. 433 one mile south of Orrstown for an auto accident. Two cars collided head on killing two instantly, another died several hours later and the fourth died the following morning. Two of the people killed were the drivers. Six others were transported to various hospitals, one was released several days later, three were upgraded to satisfactory condition and two remained in serious condition in Harrisburg General.
