DEATH IS INSTANT FOR AGED VICTIM VISITING HERE
Instant death came to Mrs. Pearl Bailey, 65, of Hardesty when she was struck by an automobile at 12th St. and Crumley at 4:30 pm. Saturday afternoon.
The death car was driven by Miss Anna Bea Calvert, 15, of Hooker, daughter of C. J. Calvert. She was driving east on the highway street.
Sobbing convulsively in the arms of young friends, Miss Calvert told her version of the accident. Mrs. Bailey was standing on the south side of the pavement as she approached from the east driving a modest speed, related the girl.
As she neared the intersection, Mrs. Bailey suddenly started to walk north across the pavement. Miss Calvert said that she was unable to stop her Pontiac sedan and she struck Mrs. Bailey full force.
Patrolman Guy Parks, who with City Marshall Charles Rogers, Sheriff Ed Smith and County Attorney, Dennis Reynolds investigated the fatal mishap, could find no tire skidmarks to show that the youthful driver had put on her brakes in the excitement of the accident. Her car was stopped at the alley intersection to the east.
Three Guymon daughters survive the accident victim, Mrs. Robert Smith, wife of the city street commissioner, Mrs. Oscar Kirk, who lives in the northeast section of the city, and Miss Pearl Bailey, who lives northeast of the accident scene one-half block. Kirk operates a pool hall at 423 N. Main while Miss Bailey is employed at the Municipal Hospital as a nurses' assistant.
It is believed that Mrs. Bailey, victim, was on her way to visit Miss Pearl Bailey after having seen a doctor here for treatment.
Miss Calvert had two other girls in the car with her, Barbara Buhl and Bonnie Weber, both of Guymon. They also said that Calvert was driving a modest speed as did another eye-witness, Mrs. M. L. Baumann, wife of the local Lutheran church pastor..... I can tell you the Calvert youngster was not driving "fast" Mrs. Bauman said.
Mrs. Bailey was a pioneer of the Hardesty community, having come there in 1908. Her husband died in 1933. A son by a first marriage, Calvin Wainscott, lives in Carrick, Tex. Howlett Funeral home has the body.
