Bernie "Aaron" Taylor, died of an apparent heart attack during a bizarre six-car and truck crackup at the bridge just north of Algona on highway 169 about 9:50 p.m. A freezing mist was falling at the time and roads were extremely slick. Involved were five cars including the Algona police car plus a pickup truck. Taylor's car was one the those involved. After investigation, he returned to his car and when the officers began to look for him, they found him slumped over in the front seat. He was taken, to St. Ann hospital by ambulance and Kossuth County Medical Examiner, Dr. R. F. Snyder, was called. Dr. Snyder pronounced Mr. Taylor dead of a heart attack. Mr. Taylor farmed both north and south of Burt during the past years. He has two children, both of whom live outside this area. Funeral arrangements are in charge of McCullough's in Algona and were pending when the Advance went to press. ALGONA POLICEMAN Eppo Bulten and patrolman Charles Bird investigated. The sequence of events went something like his: A car driven by Ardis ^ i s "reported he was visiting THRU BUH-PINGS, hay and recently picked corn were destroyed by an early morning fire Wednesday on the Jim Preston farm, 2 niiles south and one-quarter east of Swea City. Destroyed was a large barn filled with hay, 1300 bujhels of corn stored in a corn crib, and a hog house. The bla?e was discovered by a neighbor, Harry Tish, when he saw the flames from his hpu.se. The Prestons were still sleeping and didn't know of the fire until they were awakened. It is believed the fire started in the corn crib but the cause is undetermined. It started about 5 a.m. and the Swea City fire department answered the call and were standing by late Wednesday morning as the remains continued to burn. At left is the burned hay and center is the smouldering corn. Also destroyed was a Ford tractor, mounted picker, elevator outside the barn and a feed grinder. t Hogs and cattle in the two buildings escaped the flames. gona police car, damage; Roger Ford, $500; Tom Buscher 1965 Dodge pickup, $250; and Frank Molacek machine, $600. There were no charges filed and no injuries from the accident. PATROLMAN BIRD checked another accident caused by icy roads about an hour earlier on the bridge just south of Algona. A 1962 Falcon was going south on highway 169 and driven by Janet E. Zittritsch, 17 of Algona. She was turning into the rendering plant road and the motor killed. Before she could get the car started, her machine was struck from the rear by a car driven by Richard Smith, 32 of Cherokee, who was unable to stop because of the icy road. Both machines had about $200 in damage but there were no injuries. AN ARCADIA, Calif, man, William Mann, is still a patient at St. Ann hospital alter his ear struck a power pole 2 1 A miles north of the Star-Lite Drive-In theatre east of Algona about 2 a.m. Tuesday morning. Patrolman Charles Bird investigated and got Mr. Mann to the hospital. Jones, Fenton, slid on the icy jridge and hit the north edge of the bridge. Apparently Taylor stopped on the bridge also to render aid. The Algona police car, driven by Bulten, came to the scene and slid into the Jones car also. Shortly after, a car driven by Roger Menneke, Algona, slid into the Taylor car and then into the police car. A pickup truck driven by Tom Buscher, Algona, was also stop- ed on the bridge and it was struck by a car driven by Frank Molacek, Algona. Thus there were six machines involved in all and at times, it was pretty sticky with the ice and all.
