Colorado Man Dies in Accident. The body of Frank Stevens, 65 years old, of Denver, Colorado, who met with accidental death four miles beyond Young's mine, Saturday, while traveling toward Roosevelt, was shipped from the Gibbons mortuary Tuesday night, to Denver.
Mr. Stevens, a well-driller, left his Colorado home for two weeks previous, en-route for the Texas oil fields, his son, Albert, accompanying him.
The latter, driving a light truck and having as a passenger F. J. Harris, also of Denver, were a half mile ahead of the elder Stevens when the accident occurred.
Losing sight of the car driven by his parent young Stevens retraced the distance to determine the cause of the delay, only to find his father, with skull badly crushed, lying in a gulch where he had been thrown from the machine as it slid from the road in making the turn. Mesa Tribune, Mesa, Arizona Thursday, October 11, 1923.
