Orville Johnson,38,Ada Minn., farmer and hot rod racer, was killed late Tuesday when his car skidded and rolled over several times during a race at the spring festival here.
Johnson died in an ambulance en-route to a McVille, N. D.. hospital. Officials of the festival, ending Wednesday, said Johnson had been racing autos in various parts of the
northwest for about 18 years.
Physicians said Johnson died of injuries suffered when his own machine tipped onto him. A half dozen other drivers in the race were blinded by dust thrown up after the accident and had difficulty piloting their cars by the wreck.
