Marysville Youth Dies of Wounds in Auto Wreck—
Marysville, Yuba County, March 1. William A. Watson, 17, senior student in the Marysville Union High School, died at 5:30 AM today in the post hospital at Camp Beale as the result of an automobile wreck last night in which Myrl Lansdon, 16, another student, was injured critically. Gerald A. Roof, 16, was injured slightly and Robert Graham, 16, and Albert Aroftegua, 17, escaped injury. All live in Marysville and attend the high school here. The youths were returning from a basketball game in Lincoln, Placer County. Highway Patrolman Irvin Elliott of Roseville, Placer County, reported a rear tire blew out, throwing the machine out of control. It rolled over twice and came to a stop against an abutment of the Bear River Bridge about one and a half miles north of Sheridan. Lansdon was driving. Little hope was held for his recovery in the Yuba County Hospital. His injuries were said to include a fracture of the neck. The Watson boy was a son of Mr. and Mrs. J. A. Watson of 1011 H Street, Marysville. He also leaves a brother, James. Later—Lansdon died at 5 o’clock last evening. [Lincoln News Messenger, Thursday, 3-2-1944. Submitted by KKM]
