Manslaughter charges have been filed at Enid against the driver of the car involved in the two-car collision death of a Caddo county from woman who lived 15 miles southeast of Carnegie.
Mrs. Lewie Carr, Fort Cobb, was killed instantly late Saturday afternoon when the car in which she was riding collided with a second car on Highway 81, 10 miles south of Enid, near Waukomis. Death was attributed to head and chest injuries.
A preliminary hearing on the charges has been scheduled for August 27 at Enid. The driver faces a drunk-driving charge.
The fatal accident occurred about 7:30 p.m. last Saturday when Mrs. Carr was returning home from Clearwater, Kans., where she and three of her brothers, all from Carnegie, had attended a funeral for a cousin, Wendell Dyer, 46, that morning.
The family group was traveling south on the highway when sudden a car, driven by Billie Bob Cavin, 25, of Enid, approaching from the south, cut across the center line into the path of the car in which Mrs. Carr was riding with her brothers, John, Walter and George Dyer. John Dyer, who was driving said he swerved to the left in an attempt to avoid the collision but the car struck the right rear of the Carnegie car.
Passengers in the Carnegie car were Goerge Dyer, the owner, who was in the rear seat with Mrs. Carr, and Walter Dyer, who was in the front seat with John Dyer, the driver.
The three brothers and their sister had gone to Clearwater, Kans., to attend the funeral of a cousin, Wendell Dyer, who had been killed last Thursday in a tractor accident at his farm near Clearwater. Funeral services for the tractor accident victim were held Saturday morning. The local group was returning home when the second fatal accident occurred. Wendell Dyer is survived by his wife and two daughters.
Funeral services for Mrs. Carr will be held at 3:30 p.m. Thursday at the Fort Cobb Methodist church.
Mrs. Carr was born July 14, 1906, and had resided in this area all her life.
