Deloss Dittmore Crushed Under Car, Workman Succumbs
Deloss M Dittmore, 21 years old, native of Pleasant Grove, Utah, died Friday at Tooele, a few hours after he was injured in the International Smelter, while following his occupation of car repairer. Dittmore was reported to have been working beneath a railroad car when a locomotive struck the car, pusing it over the repairman's body. Both legs were badly mangled. Dittmore was rushed to the smelter's emergency hospital and a doctor summoned from Tooele. He died, however, before the doctor reached his side.
The decedent was the son of Mr and Mrs D M Dittmore. The father died in 1917 and the mother, Mrs J E Holmes, now living in Los Angeles, has been summoned to Salt Lake for the burial of her son.
Besides his mother, Dittmore is survived by the following brothers and sisters: Wilford H Dittmore, Owen and Gordon Dittmore, Miss Alpha Dittmore and Mrs Lucile Burt, all of Salt Lake; Darold Dittmore of San Francisco and Mrs Bessie Weeks of Oakland, Cal.
The body will be brought to Salt Lake for funeral and interment.
