The following article was published in the Big Spring Daily Herald on Sunday, July 18, 1971:

Officer, Bride Die
En Route To Webb

A 21 year-old Air Force lieutenant en route to Big Spring for assignment in the Webb AFB Information Office and his bride were killed near San Antonio Friday in a crash at a farm road intersection where a stop sign had been stolen.

The collision of their small car with a pickup truck killed 2nd Lt. William McDonald, 21, and his wife Andrea, 19, of suburban Universal City. The pickup driver was injured.

Lt. McDonald had already visited Big Spring and placed a deposit on an apartment here, and he and wife were due here this weekend. Webb was his first duty assignment with the Air Force.

Officers said the missing stop sign would have halted the foreign car, moving west on F 1604 across FM 1535.
