AUTO WRECK CAUSES DEATH
Comanche County Young Man Dies From Injuries Received In Automobile
Kyle E. Mahoney of Comanche county was brought to the Ashland hospital, last
Sunday, in a critical condition as the result of injuries received in a wreck
when the Ford car in which he was riding collided with a truck on the Albert
Pike highway near the state line south of Coldwater about 11:00 o'clock Saturday
night. The injured man died shortly after arriving at the hospital. A fracture
at the base of the skull was probably the cause of death although he suffered
other severe injuries in the wreck. Two other occupants of the car were not
severely injured, neither was the driver of the truck. It is said the car was a
"total wreck" and it is a wonder that any of those in it at the time of the
collision escaped death.
The deceased was the son of Mr. and Mrs. Edward Mahoney who for a number of
years have resided on their farm south of Coldwater near the state line. He was
22 years, 9 months and 26 days of age at the time of his death. The body was
taken to the Stevenson undertaking rooms and prepared for burial after which it
was taken to Coldwater for the funeral services and burial.
