A member of the Platters singing group has been killed in a traffic accident near Springfield. Damon Freeman was returning from a performance in Oklahoma when his car swerved into the median and hit a guardrail and bridge pillar. The three remainig members of the group say they will continue their show at Branson while looking for a replacement. The group performing in Branson is a re-formed Platters, which came along after the original platters broke up in the 1950s.
