Utah Auto Crash Kills Two Persons –
Wives of Victims Seriously Hurt In Sanpete

Nephi – Two Sanpete County men were killed and their wives critically injured Friday at 10:30 a.m. when the automobile in which they were riding missed a curve on highway 189 and overturned about 10 miles from Nephi in Sanpete County.

The accident claimed the lives of Merrill Reed Brady, 29 of Fairview and Rasmus Charles Fisher, 26 of Mt. Pleasant.

In poor condition at LDS hospital in Salt Lake City are their wives, Mrs. Nelda Moss Brady, 23, who suffered a possible skull fracture, probable fractured spine and possible fractured ankle, and Mrs. Melba Moss Fisher, who suffered a possible skull fracture, a fractured jaw and a fractured pelvis. Mrs. Brady and Mrs. Fisher are sisters, being daughters of Mr. and Mrs. Fred Moss of Mt. Pleasant.

On Way to Sanpete

The two couples were en route to the Ute Stampede at Nephi at the time of the accident, according to State Highway Patrolman Owen H. Beardall.

The patrolman said the driver apparently lost control of the car, since the vehicle skidded for 350 feet before it overturned.

Patrolman Beardall said that the driver of the car had not been ascertained.

Rasmus Charles Fisher was born April 30, 1915 in Hope, North Dakota, the son of Charles and Hattie Fisher. He came to Mt. Pleasant as a CCC Enrollee in 1936, and was mustered out in 1938. He had been mining at Moab for the last month.

He was married January 2, 1941 in Manti to Melba Moss of Mt. Pleasant, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Fred Moss.
