DUNDEE-- A 26-year old Azalia woman was killed in Dundee last night in a motorcylce-car accident when the automobile pulled out in front of the cycle on which she was a passenger. The victim, Mrs Steven W (Victoria B.) Naugle of 9934 Azalia Rd., Azalia, was pronounced dead on arrival at Mercy hospital, Monroe, by Dr George Diehl, an assistant county medical examiner. She suffered severe head injuries. Funeral services for her are pending at the Buhl Funeral Home, Dundee, with an autopsy scheduled today at Mercy Hospital. Mrs. Naugle, an employe (sic) of the Rawsonville Plant of the Ford Motor Company and a part-time worker at the Town and Country Bar in Dundee, was a passengr on a motorcylce dirven by jack W. Gibbs, 33, of Britton. She reportedly had asked Mr. Gibbs for a ride home from Dundee and they were en route. The cycle was westbound on Tecumseh St. (M-50) in the Dundee village limits, and collided about 8 p.m. with a car drivin by Charles C. Fann, 43, of 190 Monroe St., Dundee. Patrolman Don McLeod of the Dundee Police Department said witnesses told him the Fann car, southbound on ann Arbor Rd, and in the process of turning east onto M-50, pulled into the path of the cycle. The accident scene was just east of the US-23 Expressway in front of the Marathon Oil co service station. Patrolman McLeod had just pulled his patrol vehicle into the service station and witnessed the crash himself. He said he saw the two persons riding the motorcycle fly over the car after the collision. Mr Gibbs suffered multiple fractures of the left arm and also injured his right leg. He is listed today in serious condition in Mercy Hospital. Mr Fann, who reportedly was enroute home and alone in his car was not injured. Mrs Naugle was not wearing a safety helmet at the time of the accident and apparently suffered her head injuries when she struck the pavement after thrown over the Fann vehicle. Mr. Gibbs, however, was wearing a helmet and reportedly landed the same way but didn't suffer head injuries. Dundee police and state police of the Erie post who assisted said it is possible the woman might not have been killed if she had been wearing a helmet. The fatal crash was the first in the village of Dundee since June 28, 1967, and that accident also involved a motorcyle. Ronald Boldt, 19, of 442 VanNest St., Dundee, was fatally injured when the motorcycle he was riding went out of control and struck the front of a house on Adams St. The youth was thrown through a double glass window in the house. Mrs. Naugle's death brings to 30 the number of persons killed in Monroe County accidents so far this year. There had been 18 fatal crashes in the county by this time last year. Friends may call after 7p.m. tomorrow in the Buhl Funeral Home, Dundee. The daughter of Thomas Sever and Harriet Beard, she was born June 19, 1945, in Northville. She was married to Mr Naugle July 30, 1966, in Ypsilanti. Mrs Naugle lived in Ypsilanti prior to coming to Dundee, where she had lived two years. She had worked at Squires Manufacturing Co., Milan, a year before being employed two years at the Town and Country Bar., and a week at the Rawsonville Plant of the Ford Motor co. Surviving are her husband; her father of Battle Creek; her mother of Azalia; three sons, Timothy, Wesley Allen and Danny L., all at home; five brothers, Thomas Sever of Brighton, Larry and Dick Sever of Westland, John Sever of the Marine Corps in North Carolina and Kenneth Beard of Azalia; a sister, Tammy Sever of Azalia, and grandmother, Mrs. Frank Newhouse of Ypsilanti.
