Our brownie scouts are dead and six others in the hospital after the collision of a station wagon and a truck about 3 miles east of here on U.S. 50. The Colorado State Patrol said about 11 scouts and two adults were traveling by station wagon to an afternoon outing Thursday (15 May 1975). The station wagon was struck in the rear by a semi-trailer grain truck attempting to pass the patrol said. Most of the passengers were thrown from the station wagon. Three of them were found on the opposite side of a railroad track which runs parallel to the highways. The dead were identified as Kendi Lou Gunn 7, Vicki Donovan 6, Melinda Craft 6 and Kelley Kesterson 7 all of Fowler Colo. Three of the children hospitalized are in serious condition. The driver of the station wagon was treated and released. (Reno Evening Gazette 16 May 1975
