Graduate of U. Killed in Ogden Crash
OGDEN (Special) -- Brent C. Andersen, 25, 2623 Brinker ave., office manager of the Utah Tailoring Mills, Ogden, and former Salt Lake City resident, was killed instantly Friday at 2:45 a.m. when the convertible in which he was a passenger failed to negotiate a curve at Riverdale road and Washington boulevard, and came to a stop on the steps leading to a mortuary at 3408 Washington blvd.
His parents, Mr. and Mrs. J.A. Andersen, reside at 318 Hubbard ave., Salt Lake City.
Mrs. Edythe Winchester, 24, 670-26th st., thrown from the car into a nearby gutter, was reported in "fair" condition late Friday at St. Benedict's hospital. She suffered multiple abrasions and lacerations of the legs and possible internal injuries.
Two other passengers in the careening auto, Lois Taylor, 25, Layton, and William Hal Thorpe, 27, Salt Lake City, suffered bruises and abrasions, but were not hospitalized.
Wayne B. Winchester, 27, Ogden, driver of the car, was not injured.
The convertible was estimated by Traffic Sgt. Ray M. Clawson to have been traveling at a high rate of speed as it began to turn off Riverdale road onto Washington boulevard.
It sheared off two traffic designation signs, smashed into several lengths of heavy cast iron watermains lying on the parking and skidded along the curbing for a distance of 400 ft. before coming to rest on the first landing of steps leading to the mortuary, just off the public sidewalk, the officer said.
Mr. Andersen was born Aug. 8, 1925, at Richmond, Cache county, a son of John Albert and Mary Edith Johnson Andersen. He attended Salt Lake City public schools and was graduated from South high school. He was a graduate of the University of Utah, class of 1950, and held a degree in business and finance. He was a member of the Sigma Nu fraternity.
During World War II, he served in the U.S. air force for three and one-half years. He was a member of the Salt Lake Liberty ward Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
Surviving are his parents, two brothers and a sister: Del Andersen, Portland, Ore.; Rollo Andersen, Provo, and Allene Andersen, Salt Lake City
