Wehrman, Henriette #2 (12 AUG 1867 - 30 DEC 1944)

Injuries suffered in an automobile collision at Wolters’ Corners, 3 miles west of Longwood, resulted in the death of Mrs. William Wehrman, 77, at the scene of the accident Saturday afternoon.

Mrs. Wehrman, a resident of Greenwood (Clark Co., Wis.), was on her way to Barron with her son and daughter-in-law, Mr. and Mrs. Simon Wehrman, when the car driven by her son collided with another occupied by Elmer Stafford and his son, Lyle, of Owen.

The Stafford car struck the front of the Wehrman vehicle and pushed it against a vacant store building which obscures visibility at the intersection of County Trunks N and O, where the crash occurred. A cheese factory at the same intersection also obscures the view from one direction.

The Wehrmans were driving north and the Staffords west at the time of the accident.

Mrs. Wehrman, who was riding in the rear seat of the car, spoke after the mishap, but died at about 2:30 p.m., shortly after the crash.

It was not immediately determined whether the death was caused by a head injury or whether shock was the principal contributing factor. The case was investigate by the Clark County traffic police department.

Burial took place at the West Side Cemetery at Greenwood.
