Resident of Lost Springs Loses Life in Car Accident Near County Line Last Thursday

NOTE: This obituary is entered as published. However, the name August Anders has been used as this is the name used by his sister, Margaret Ball, and other family members.

August Andrews, 37 years old, for many years a resident of Lost Springs, was instantly killed about 5:00 o'clock last Thursday evening, when he was struck by a fast moving automobile driven by George W. Warren, a well driller from Casper.

The accident occurred about a mile east of Lost Springs, only a few feet from the Niobrara-Converse county line.

According to a coroner's jury investigating the case, the accident was unavoidable. Mr. Andrews, a veteran of the World War, had just stepped from a car driven by Alex Frosheiser, with whom he had been riding, when the machine driven by Warren, traveling westward toward Casper, came over a slight rise, and Andrews walked directly in front of it. He suffered a fractured skull, a broken arm and other injuries, which caused instant death.

August Andrews was born July 1, 1894, at Creighton, Neb. During the world war he enlisted in the service of the United States and went to France with one of the first American outfits to see action.

While in the service he was wounded and following the close of the war he came to Lost Springs and has since made his home with his sister, Mrs. Margaret Wright Ball and her husband, W. W. Ball, who are well known here.

Mr. Andrews never married. Funeral services were held at Lost Springs, last Saturday afternoon at 1:00 o'clock with the Earl Norris Post of the American Legion in charge. The remains were shipped to Creighton, Nebr., for interment in a cemetery at his old home. He is survived by two brothers, two sisters and his father, who reside at that place.
