Mrs. Chagnon Killed In Auto Accident

Mrs. Leon Chagnon, 56, Havre matron, was killed Friday evening about 6:45 o'clock soon after the car in which she was riding collided with another vehicle at Bowman's corner, where the Wolf Creek-Augusta highway intersects with the Rogers pass road about 20 miles south of Augusta. Injured in the crash were the drivers of the cars, John Robinson of Ringling and Leon Chagnon of Havre, who was driving the car in which his wife was riding.

Helena sheriff said Robinson was driving north on the Wolf Creek-Augusta road and Chagnon was traveling east on the Rogers pass road when the cars collided at the intersection. Mrs. Chagnon was thrown from the wreckage and died about 15 minutes after the crash.

Funeral services for Mrs. Chagnon will be conducted at St. Jude's Catholic church Wednesday at 9 a.m.
