Fatal Milton Hill Accident Laid to Fog

MILTON-FREEWATER (Special) -- The highway collision in which William Edward Givens of route 1 was injured fatally Friday noon on the Milton hill south of here was attributed in part, at least, to limited visibility.

The car Givens was driving collided with a pea silage truck proceeding up the hill, driven by William Edgar Zimmerman.

Zimmerman advised Oregon State Police that Given's car attempted to pass another car, Zimmerman said he saw the collision was imminent and attempted to pull his truck off the highway but the Givens' car was too close and hit the side of the truck.

Givens was taken to a hospital in Walla walla by ambulance. He died shortly after arrival.

The car Givens was driving belonged to Helen Baird of Athena.

Funeral arragements are pending efforts by the family to have a son, Wallace Dean Givens, who is in the Army in the Philippines, returned. Other survivors are: a daughter, Donna Lee Givens in California, another son, William Lawrence Givens, Milton-Freewater; the deceased's parents, Mr. and Mrs. S.E. Givens, Umapine; and two sisters, Mrs. Deltha Wood and Mrs. Betty Benz, both of Umapine.

Mrs. W. E. Givens died 3 1/2 years ago.

Givens had been a dairy farmer but of late had been working in a local tavern.
