MONTAGUE MAN IS KILLED INSTANTLY
E.L. Price of Montague, was almost instantly killed and two others injured Friday night, when a machine driven by Edward Kroll of Montague, crashed into a tree while going at a rapid speed on the new White Lake road. Mrs. Price suffered a broken arm, while the driver was also injured. Miss Clara Price, the other occupant of the car, escaped injury.
Two automobiles left Montague for a trip along the new highway, which has become a favorite speedway in the section. The other machine contained Louis Kroll, brother of Edward, and his wife and Miss Hattie Seaver. Miss Seaver was driving the machine and passed the car driven by Edward Kroll. Both machines were going at a rapid speed, when Mr. Kroll lost control and the car smashed into a tree.
The occupants were hurled from the car and Mr. Price died within a few minutes. The funeral was held at 2 o'clock this afternoon at Montague. The injured members of the party are recovering.
Coroner James F. Balbimie was notified Saturday night regarding the accident and went to the scene Sunday to make an investigation. The coroner said that he had not yet decided what action he would take in the matter, but that he would confer with the prosecuting attorney today regarding the facts.
