The accident occurred when the car skidded broadside into the sign-covered tree at left. A 58-year-old Arizona woman was killed instantly Saturday when the car in which she was riding skidded broadside into a tree on a curve seven miles east of Edmond on U.S. 66. Three others were critically injured. Mrs. Harvey Taylor, 58, of Yuma, Ariz., was crushed inside the wrecked automobile. She was a passenger in a car driven by A. Linn Bear, 65, of Decatur, Ill. Bear received severe head injuries. Two passengers, also injured, were Mrs. Mary Agnes Bear, 64, wife of the driver and sister of the victim, and Thomas L. Richie, 47, of 1314 NW 10, a brother. All three were taken to the Edmond hospital for treatment. Mrs. Bear has head injuries, and Richie has a punctured lung and head injuries. Trooper Leo White said Bear apparently lost control. Two wreckers were needed to pull the wreckage apart to remove the body of the victim."
