INJURED WOMAN FOUND IN BARN Fatal Crash Goes Unnoticed: Edmond- A Guthrie woman was killed Friday and her dazed companion spent the bitterly cold night in a cattle barn after their auto plunged into a creek bed northwest of Edmond, it was learned Saturday. The victim was identified as Mrs. Sarah Mundell, 27. Her passenger, Mrs. Beatrice White, 26, also of Guthrie, suffered cold exposure and minor injuries. The accident occurred sometime Friday night but was not discovered until 4;15 p.m. Saturday. When rescuers approached the accident scene, Mrs. White called to them from the doorway of the barn. "She was awfully cold, but she was rational and didn't seem badly injured," said Edmond Police Chief Ray Rich. Mrs. White told officers she crawled from the wrecked car toward the lights of a farmhouse 300 yards distant. "I couldn't make it to the house, so I went into the barn to rest," she related. The R. D. Neal farm family told officers they did not hear the accident and were away from home much of the day Saturday. They were unaware that the injured woman was in the barn. She was being treated at Edmond Memorial Hospital. The death car hurtled 75 feet through the air."
