One Killed, Two Hurt In La Grande Accident
La Grande, June 23. – Edward Clausen was killed. Mrs. Clausen received a broken arm, and Jullius Clausen, a brother, suffered a fractured skull when a coupe in which they were riding at excessive speed, according to police, overturned last night at about 12:45 on the Mt. Glen road at the first turn north of Riverside park. They were trying to turn the corner when the car upset pinning both men underneath in about one foot of water.
Julius Clausen was saved from drowning by the arrival of Albert Felk, who was returning from his work in La Grande, and who pulled him from under the car.
Edward Clausen was driving the car when the accident occurred. When the car overturned the left door fell open and Mr. Clausen was thrown from the car, breaking his neck and crushing the left side of his chest. It is believed that his death was instantaneous although he was held in the water by the weight of the automobile.
