19-Day 'Holiday' Ends
S. L Man Dies
In Smashup

SALT LAKE CITY (UP) — A
Salt Lake City motorist was killed
today in a two-car smashup that
ended 19 days without a death on
Utah highways.

The victim was 45 - year old
George Andrew Anderson, who was
dead upon arrival at a Salt Lake
City hospital.

Three other men, Melvin Rich,
18, Carl I. Johansen, 19, and Rich
ard Sorensen, 18, were injured in
the mishap at 4th East and 6th
South Streets. All were cut and
bruised.

Police said the accident occurred
when Anderson's eastbound automobile
and Johansen's southbound
car collided and both skidded out
of control. Anderson's car overturned
and pinned him beneath it
while Johansen's vehicle struck a
tree.

Anderson's death boosted Utah's
1955 highway toll to 32, compared
with 26 for a similar period last
year.
