Charleston Man Fatally Hurt in Auto Accident
CHARLESTON, Mo., Dec. 9—Oliver W. Andrews, one of Charleston's best known merchants was killed in an auto accident on his way home from the Presbyterian Church, at Virginia and Commercial streets, last evening.
He had stopped and let a car pass him and just as he started up, another car, driven by Carl D. Parker, a youth from Blodgett, Mo., crashed into him. He was carried into the residence of Ed Deal and lived about an hour, never regaining consciousness. He was 70 years of age.
An inquest held by Dr. W. P. Howle exonerated young Parker, as he was driving only 10 miles an hour at the time of the accident.
He was a brother-in-law of Mr. Casper Sanders, of Cairo, and was survived by his wife and daughter. He was a grocer and confectioner.
Mr. Andrews was born in Tennessee on March 30, 1851, and removed to Charleston from Cairo on July 4, 1874. He was married on August 30, 1882, to Miss Nettie Lutz and a daughter, Miss Inez Andrews, is the only survivor of three children.
Funeral services will be held Tuesday afternoon at 2 o'clock from the residence.
