Dinger Doane is featured on the website, Oldest Living Pro Football players.

His story takes a strange twist after a 1928 jaunt in a car. Apparently, heavy drinking led to a car accident which sustained Doane minor injuries. His friend, however, landed in the hospital with a broken leg.

The friend had a further unfortunate incident when he attempted to get a peek at his leg by lighting a match. The match lit up the whole room when his leg splints caught fire.
