Frederick, Gust (Feb 1871 - 17 Jan 1951)

Gust Frederick of Colby, Wisconsin, age 79, died at the Marshfield, (Wisconsin) Hospital at 6:30 A.M. Wednesday of injuries suffered when he was struck by a car while walking on a country road not far from his home at about 11:30 Tuesday night. The accident happened about a half mile from the home of his son, H. D. Frederick, four miles west and two miles south of Colby, where he had been making his home.

Harland Hardrath of Owen, Wisconsin, Route 1, driver of the car involved, reported to William Nelson, Clark county traffic officer, that the car he was driving struck Frederick when the latter attempted to cross the road in front of him. Hardrath said that both he and Frederick were traveling west when Frederick suddenly tried to cross the road. He said he swerved into a ditch in an effort to avoid hitting him but the right front end of the car hit the man and threw him to the ground.

Frederick was taken to the Marshfield, Wisconsin Hospital by ambulance where doctors reported he was suffering from a compound fracture of the right leg, a broken left leg, a broken pelvis and internal injuries. He died three and one-half hours after being admitted. The body was taken to the Griebnow Funeral Home in Owen.
