Auto Accident Near Hot Lake Results In Death Of Woman

The straight stretch of highway between Hot Lake and La Grande was the scene of an automobile accident last Friday morning which resulted in the death of Mrs. W.H. White.

A party composed of Mrs. White, her two grown daughters, Pearl and Helen and Mr. and Mrs. Paul Miller and son Harold, left Nampa, Idaho, Thursday night, it is stated, and Mr. Miller who was driving was apparently tired and half-asleep. The car went into the ditch and in attempting to bring it back on the highway the car was turned over, pinning Mrs. White underneath and killing her instantly. The party was picked up later and taken to la Grande, where it was found none of the other occupants of the car were hurt.

They were on their way to Portland and Pasadena, Calif., where the White family expected to locate. The body of Mrs. White was taken their for burial.
