Remembering Brad Henderson

Brad Henderson would have celebrated his 66th birthday this week (Aug. 15), but he was killed in an automobile accident almost 50 years ago on Labor Day, Sept. 7, 1964. He and his girlfriend, Diane Driggars, died instantly when their automobile was struck head on by a drunk driver at the intersection of Wesleyan Drive and Riverside Drive near what is now The Shoppes at River Crossing.
