Elizabeth May Smith - coroner inquest
Accidental Death Is Jury's Verdict A coroner's jury sitting last week determined that Mrs. Elizabeth Smith, whose home was at 42129 Walnut Street, Chilliwack, died of accidental causes. Mrs. Smith, who suffered a broken leg in an automobile accident May 16, died in hospital May 23. Evidence produced at the inquest showed actual cause of death to have been from fat embolism, a condition in which tiny globules of fat act as blood clots. No date has as yet been set for an inquest into the death of R. G. "Buck" Ferguson, who died in hospital after a Highway 401 accident. The mishap, which occurred June 23, happened when Ferguson lost control of his vehicle near Prest Road.
