"Union City Man Killed on Route 6 - A 30-year-old Union City man was killed and two fellow townsmen were seriously injured at 12:45 am yesterday when the car in which they were riding left Route 6 and crashed into a tree. Robert N Botsford (passenger) of 13 1/2 Center St, Union City, was pronounced dead on arrival at Corry Memorial Hospital a few minutes after the accident...Mr Botsford had been called back to work at (Aero Supply Mfg Co) about two weeks ago, on Feb 13, after having been laid off for over a year. He was a process inspector on the night shift which ends at 12:30 am...all three were on their way directly home from work at the time of the crash. The accident victim served in the US Navy during World War II and the Korean Conflict. He was wounded in a drive near Seoul, having been shot in the shoulder and wounded in the hips and legs by an exploding hand grenade. He attended Mill Village and Waterford schools and was a member of the Future Farmers of America while in high school.
