(UPI) — Memorial services were scheduled tonight for David Earl "Swede" Savage, who died Monday of burns and injuries suffered in a flaming crash into the wall during the Indianapolis 500HmMe race May 30. Savage's body was to be flown to San Bernardino, Calif., today, where funeral and burial arrangements were pending. Savage, 26, of Santa Ana, Calif., was the third person to die as a result of accidents at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway during May. Art Pollard, a veteran driver from Medford, Ore., was killed May 12 during practice for qualifications when his car hit a wall at racing speeds and skidded upside down into the infield. A crew member for one of car owner Andy Granatelli's entries, Armando Tenan, 22, Santa Monica, Calif., was struck and killed by a fire truck in the pits as it raced to where Savage's car hit a retaining wall at itihe head of the main straightaway. The fire-red Eagle exploded into a ball of flames on impact. The cockpit in which Savage was harnessed came to rest near the outside wall, causing the race to be halted for more ithan an hour on the 59th lap. Savage was rushed by heli copter to Methodist Hospital in Indianapolis, suffering burns and broken legs. His death, announced by Speedway Medical Director Dr. Thomas Hanna, came at 9:40 a.m. EST. The 1973 "500" was only his second at Indy. He started in ninth place in 1972, but dropped out with a broken connecting rod after only five laps. Before the fatal crash, Savage led 12 laps. The broad-shouldered handsome Savage used to say "my accidents have made a better driver of me." During his racing career, he suffered collapsed lungs, broken ribs, a caved-in chest and a severe brain concussion, the latter at Ontario, Calif., which resulted in his missing the 1971 season. He began driving stock cars in 1967 and he became the protege of Dan Gumey in 1968. Savage placed fifth in his first USAC race at Donnybrooke and scored his first championship car win in 1970 at Phoenix.
