Dean died, his passenger and the other driver survived.

In 1966, in the year of Frederick Osterheldt's passing, on September 8th, the first Star Trek episode, "The Man Trap," was broadcast on NBC. The plot concerned a creature that sucked salt from human bodies. The original series only aired for 3 seasons due to low ratings.
