As they neared the corner at Jay Em the elderly gentleman evidently lost control of the car and it plunged over a 25 ft. embankment. The driver suffered a shoulder injury, broken ribs and numerous lacerations and bruises.

Mrs. Perry was thrown in such a manner as to have her ribs crushed and also suffered a possible fractured neck vertebrae. A Lusk doctor was called immediately, however, the lady passed away within 30 minutes after the accident. Patrolman Slagle of Torrington made an investigation of the accident, and took the injured driver to a Torrington hospital.
