The Sentinel reported that two dentists from Carlisle were hurt in a two-car collision in Harrisburg late in the evening of Feb. 11, 1944. Dr. Robert R. Rearick of the first block of South Pitt Street and Dr. J.J. Burgoon of the first block of Willow Street were passengers in a vehicle driven by Dr. J. Franklin Miller of the 100 block of West Louther Street. The three men were in the company of a fourth Carlisle dentist named Dr. A.M. Geesey of North Hanover Street. Miller’s car collided with another vehicle at the snow-covered intersection of Second and Seneca streets. The four dentists had just left a meeting of the Harrisburg Dental Society. Rearick and Burgoon were taken to the Polyclinic Hospital. Both suffered rib injuries.
