Aged Sherman Man Killed Saturday
The Willis-Knight five-passenger auto driven by J. M. Buchanan ran off an embankment two miles north of Caddo Saturday afternoon about 2 o’clock, pinning Mr. Buchanan underneath. Passing motorists brought him to Caddo where first aid was given by Dr. Dale, then taken to Durant Hospital where he died within a short time of his injuries.
The remains were taken to Muskogee and buried beside his wife who had died a few days before.
Mr. Buchanan was accompanied by his daughter, they returning to their home in Sherman, and lost control of the car on the narrow road as above stated. The car turned over several times before reaching the bottom of the embankment. The top and windshield were shattered. The woman was not injured.
Mr. Buchanan was a retired farmer of near Sherman.
At her home near Ury last Thursday Mrs. J. H. McKinney died after a long illness. The remains were brought to Caddo and buried in Caddo Cemetery Friday.
Mrs. McKinney formerly lived in Caddo, was the mother of Mrs. Lee McGee, and was a member of the Nazarene Church. The friends of the family sympathize with them in their bereavement.
