Davis suffered a gashea knee and possible chest injuries. Republican-Herald photo Mrs. J. Roland Eddie And Mother Victims; Cars Crash Head-on By Staff Writer Westby, head-on crash of two automobiles during a driving rain' near here Wednesday night brought death to Mrs. J. Roland Eddie, 46, and her mother, Mrs. Lena Carrier, 73, both of Winona. The accident occurred at about 10 p. yesterday on highway 14, five miles west of here, while Mrs. Eddie and her mother were returning to Winona from Viroqua where Mr. Eddie had supervised the establish- ment, oi' a plastics exhibit at the Verncn county fair yesterday. Mrs Eddie and Mrs. Carrier were killed outright. Their convertible I roadster was struck by a car driven by John Davis, i 54-year-old Viro- qua carpenter. Earlier in the day, friend of Mr. Eddie had driven a, pick- up truck with sunpleg of plas- tic product! sold by the firm which Mr. Eddie operates to the fairgrounds at and up the eiilbit. Early yesterday evening, Mr. and Mrs. Eddie and Mrs. Carrier drove to Viroqua to view the ex- hibit and the return trip to Winona was being made with Mr. Eddie driving the truck, followed by Mrs. Eddie and Mrs. Carrier in the car. Heavy Downpour Mr. Eddie told Vernon County Sheriff Morris Moon that he was driving west on highway 14 during the heavy downpour when he notic- ed the eastbound Davis car ap- proaching partially in the wrong lane of traffic. Mr. Eddie said that he drove off on the shoulder ol the road to avoid a collision and, after the car had passed, continued on his way along the highway. A short time Inter, Mr. Ed- die sftid, he noticed that the lights of hlg wife's car were no loafer visible and he decided to ro beck and if flat tire or mechanical difficulties had caused the car to be stalled. After returning a short distancs down the road, Mr. Eddie came up- on tie two crashed automobiles. Vernon county authorities were notified and a six-man coroner's jury was summoned immediately to view the crash scene and the bodies. The jury was then adjourned to await further investigation by county" officials. Davis, who is not believed to have been seriously injrred, is con- fined in a Viroqua hospital for I treatment of'possible internal In- juries, a gashed knee and bruises. Blood Test Sheriff Moon said this morning that Davis has volunteered to sub- mit to a blood test to determine the alcoholic content of his blood. No charge had been placed at noon today against the Viroqua man. Vernon County Coroner Oie Jack- son and District Attorney Martin Gulbrandsen also visited the acci- dent scene to participate in the In- vestigation, as well as Deputies Bernard Ammerman and Otto Jefson. Sheriff Moon said today that his investigation revealed that the Da- vis car apparently had been strad- dling the center line of the high- way at the time of the collision. H-? added: that the heavy rain had washed away some of the tire marks and other evidence of the crash. After the impact, the Eddie car was pushed off on the shoul- der of the road and the rear por- tion of the car was partially off the highway. A Westby physician who was called to the accident scene pro- nounced both women dead. He said they apparently were killed out- right. Both, he said, suffered broken necks.
