Lehi Resident Succumbs To Head-On Crash Injuries

Salt Lake City, Nov. 11 - Utah's 1940 traffic fatality gauge pointed to 147 today after a week-end in which two pedestrians were struck and killed by a car on a downtown street here and a third automobile accident victim died in Lehi.
The Salt Lake City victims were Mrs. Elizabeth Ellen Hutchison Taylor Hill, 42, and Joseph Vernon Jenkins, 35.
Their deaths came at three-thirty a.m. Sunday when, said traffic investigators E. H. Christensen and C. F. Peirce, they were hit by a machine traveling 50 miles an hour and carried 95 feet.
Alex Gray, 30, of Salt Lake City, whom the officers named as driver of the car, was booked on a drunken driving charge.
David Pryde Mitchell, 29, of Lehi, succumbed in a Lehi hospital late Saturday night to injuries received the previous evening in a headon collision between a truck and the automobile in which he was a passenger.
