Perry, longtime Algona dry cleaning plant owner, died almost instantly. when she [ was crushed beneath her overturned car at the entrance to the Chrome corner about 5:10 p.m. Thursday afternoon. . j Mrs. Perry was returning from an afternoon visit to Burt when she lost control of her car after coming over the hill on highway 169 just north of Algona. : ' A P.l.E. semi-trailer, .pulling', two short units, had just pulled from the west entrance, to the ; Chrome service station and turned south on 169 towards the four-way stop signs. DRIVER CLARENCE C. Blaha, Fort Dodge, told deputy sheriff Larry Hudson, who was ailed to the scene, that he had waited at the highway entrance or two cars to come down the lill and then pulled onto the oadway when no cars were in ight. He was unaware of the tragic accident until he was stopped by a passing motorist as he prepared to pull away from the four corner stop signs. v . Apparently, Mrs. Perry had come over the crest of the hill, and lost control of her ; 1958 Oldsmobile' 1 when 'she attempted to brake the machine upon seeing the truck ahead of her. Hudson said the Perry car swerved off onto the east shoulder and into the Chrome entrance. The bottom of the skidding car struck something which caused it to flip over. Mrs. Perry was apparently thrown out as the car flipped and the top of the machine landed on her body. The car continued to roll over and off of her body but she was dead on arrival at St. Ann hospital. The fatality was the third of the year for Kossuth county. The pavement was dry at the time of the accident and it was a reasonably bright day. The Perry car was termed a otal loss.
