Irelan Victim; Husband, Youth Injured An Algona woman, Mrs. Mabel Marie Irelan, 64, was killed instantly, and her husband, Wm. Carl Irelan, 70, driver of the car in which she was a passenger, and Earl Will, 18, of LuVerne, driver of a second vehicle were in Lutheran hospital, Fort Dodge, after a tragic automobile crash about 10;50 a. m. Tuesday. The accident happened at the intersection of U. S. highway 169 and state highway 222, in north Humboldt county. From details of the mishap as pieced together by investigating officers, Will apparently failed to halt at the stop sign on highway 222, and struck the Irelan car broadside, Officers said there were 27 feet of skid marks at the scene, believed to be those of the Will car. Sheriff Marvin Anderson of Humboldt, and Highway Patrolman Darold Stinman and Dave Tjepkes of Fort Dodge, were called to the scene, as was Dr. Frank Coddington, Humboldt county coroner. The force of the impact threw Mr. Irelan from the car and he was found lying beside the vehicle. Mrs. Irelan was pinned in the car, with part of her' body in the rear seat. A wrecker was required to pull out the right side of the Irelan car so that the body could be removed. The Irelan car was towed to Funk's Garage at Humboldt. The Will car was towed to Liver more. After the impact the Irelan car traveled 170 feet to the southeast, coming to rest on its wheels. The Will car traveled 84 feet to the southeast, also upright. The collision struck the Irelan car about in the middle of the right side, where Mrs. Irelan was riding. The adjacent photos, taken by the Humboldt Newspapers very shortly after the crash, give a graphic account of the tragedy. The Irelan car was headed south. The LuVerne youth was traveling east on highway 222 in a 1965 Dodge. The Irelan car was a 1965 Buick. Will had been to Bode to see Dr. Frank Tepner, and had medicine in his car for a skin rash. He apparently was on his way home. He is a son of Robert Will of rural LuVerne. The condition of both Mr. Irelan and the Will youth was reported as "fair" at the Fort Dodge hospital after the crash, but Wednesday •morning Mr. Irelan's condition was listed as "critical". The full extent of the injuries were still being determined. Dr. Tepner of Bode was also called to the scene immediately after the crash, and administered to Mr. Irelan and the Will youth he had seen only a few minutes before the accident. The Irelans are longtime residents of Algona. Mr. Irelan, 70, has been retired for several years from services with the Equitable Life Assurance Society of New York. The Irelans have one daughter, Jo Ellen, Mrs. Robert Middleton of Riverside, Calif. She was notified of the tragedy and was expected to arrive in Algona sometime Wednesday.
