Man Killed In Highway Accident

Ray Knudson, 27, of Provo, Utah, was killed near Haines Monday morning, when his auto left the highway and turned over pinning the occupants underneath. Two companions, J.W. Roberts and Donald Roberts, escaped serious injury.

The trio were headed for Twin Falls, Idaho, from Los Angeles, Calif., and had been driving day and night in order to reach their destination as soon as possible. The accident happened when Roberts attempted to relieve Knudson at the steering wheel. There were no marks of serious injury about Knudson’s body, and death was laid to heart disease.

The men were pinned underneath the car for three hours before the elder Roberts was able to extricate himself and get help.
