Spokane Man Killed In Wreck On Highway

John MacKenzie, 22, college athlete of Spokane, was killed six miles west of La Grande on the Old Oregon Trail highway late Saturday night. He was found dead beneath his overturned truck. First reports that he had fallen asleep at the wheel were acouted (sic) by friends, who declared he might have been blinded by light from an approaching car.

MacKenzie was halfback on the Gonzaga college football team and was working for the Joslin, McAllister Construction company during his vacation. He also was a basketball player and member of the track team. He was en route to La Grande from Portland. His body was taken to Spokane.
