Indiana-born entertainer Damon Freeman -- who sang with a popular doo-wop group in Branson, Missouri -- died in a weekend car crash in Missouri. The 40-year-old Freeman died early Sunday in a crash on Interstate 44, just west of Springfield, Missouri. The Missouri State Highway Patrol says the former Gary, Indiana resident's car veered into the median and struck a guardrail and bridge pillar. For the past three years, Freeman had been a member of a group known as the World Famous Platters, which performs at the Americana Theatre in Branson. The quartet was one of many offshoots of the popular 1950s doo-wop group The Platters, known for the songs "Only You" and "The Great Pretender. A member of the group's management team was seriously injured in the crash. Freeman's funeral will be held in Gary.
