Two Injured In Wreck
Die At Hot Lake Sunday

Both Mrs. Marjorie Wykoff, of La Grande, and R.L. Hite of Spokane, Wash., seriously hurt in an auto accident Friday of last week, died as a result of their injuries at the Hot Lake sanatorium Sunday. The woman passed away Sunday morning about 1:55 o’clock and the man died early Sunday evening. Skull fractures were said to have caused the death of both.

The fatal accident occurred late Friday afternoon, just west of the Hot Lake viaduct when Hite’s large car failed to make a turn, ran into the bank and rolled over. Both were badly injured, but it was not known at that time whether or not they had skull fractures. Neither regained consciousness, although Hite was delirious at times.

Mrs. Wykoff was 26 years, 10 months and 23 days old at the time of her death. She leaves, besides her divorced husband, George E. Wykoff, two small sons, ages three and five, her mother, Mrs. W.M. Palmer, and two brothers, Martin L. Gillis and Albert Gillis, all of La Grande, and one sister, Mrs. Pearl Berdar of Spokane, Wash.

Hite’s body was taken to Spokane for burial.
