Died in Auto Wreck
A hidden chuck hole in the Baker road, near Haines, caused an automobile to overturn and resulted in the death of Dr. McKinnion of Sandpoint, Idaho, Wednesday of this week.
Dr. McKinnion was on of a party of four, touring this section of Oregon, on his way to Yellowstone National Park. The wife of the physician and Mr. and Mrs. Sydney Smith of Standpoint (sic), were the other occupants of the car and escaped without injury.
Dr. McKinnion was driving the car and was pinned under the steering wheel. He was removed from beneath the machine and a passing auto started with him to Baker, but death came before that city was reached.
The deceased was 52 years old and had been a resident of the Idaho town for a number of years.
