Heart transplant recipiënt Donald L. Kaminski, 41, Alpena, who was injured in a car accident early Tuesday in Detroit, and Mrs. Pauline Holland, 64, of Ann Arbor, the state's latest lung transplant recipiënt, were both reported in "good condition" today at University Hospital. Kaminski, the world's second longest living person with another's heart, sufifered three broken ribs and face cuts with his car went out of control on the Southfield freeway south of Warren at 3:20 a.m. Tuesday and crashed into a guard rail. He received the heart of Eobert J. Pushman, 22, of Fenton, on Dec. 2, 1968, at University Hospital. Mrs. Holland of 323 Pauline Blvd., received the lung t)f Frank A. Hemmer, 30, of Monroe last Saturday at University Hospital. Both transplants were performed by a surgical team headed by Dr. Donald R. Kahn, U-M associate professor of surgery. She was reported off the respirator which has aided her breathing since surgery, but still in the intensive care unit. Pólice said they have charged Kaminski, a divorced grandfather with careless driving. He is to appear in traffic court on April 23. The Alpena man has pursued a strenuous life since receiving his new heart: hunting, fishing, flying i airplanes and tra veling as sales i tative for three Michigan firms. J
