A Clinton County woman was Howard County's 30th traffic fatality in 1974 early Tuesday morning (December 17, 1974) when her car was hit broadside by a semi-truck which failed to stop for a traffic light, according to police reports.

Marjorie Snyder, 52, Michigantown was dead at the scene of the accident at the intersection of Ind. 26 and U.S. 31, shortly after 5 a.m. Coroner Charles Woolington said the woman died of massive head and multiple injuries.

The eastbound Snyder car was struck in the intersection by a semi driven by Thomas R. Moore, 30, Odell, Illinois, which was headed south on U.S. 31. Police said that Moore told them he couldn't get stopped for the red light for his lanes of traffic. He said he swerved to the left to try to miss a westbound vehicle and the Snyder car drove in front of him. Moore said he was blowing his horn all during the incident.

The truck driver was not injured in the accident which occurred during a snowfall on wet pavement.
Police and the coroner spent several hours trying to locate relatives of the woman for notification of the death.
Police said Mrs. Snyder was on her way to work at Delco Electronics at the time of the mishap.

She was born May 6, 1922 in Michigantown to Chalmer and Dolly Bernice Bougher Stockberger. She married Emil J. Snyder on November 4, 1953, and he survives.

Other survivors include her father, Chalmer; two sons, Lewis Stockberger and James Lee Snyder; three daughters, twins Sharon Kay and Karen Rae, and Vicky Lynn Snyder.

She was preceded in death by her mother, Dolly Bernice Stockberger.
