Edna Kay with a number of other children were enjoying a ride upon a motor truck, driven by Harland Wooster, enroute to the West End school building. The little girl was standing upon the running board.
When a gust of wind blew her hat from her head. She attempted to alight to recover it. She stepped from the machine backward and was thrown to the ground. her head struck the pavement, fracturing her skull. Although physicians have made every possible effort to save her life and although hopes were at first entertained for her recovery, she died in the institution Wednesday afternoon.
