Another terrible accident at Wayzatta follows the Glueck auto disaster last week at Cottagewood, Lake Minnetonka. Mrs. Minnie Hart sustained a fracture of the skull at the base of her brain, which caused her death. Her husband was painfully injured, but today sat beside the corpse in the home Dr. J. L. Tibbetts, Wayzatta, where she died.

Sunday afternoon the Harts and Ericksons in a Hart runabout went to Mound Minnetonka. It was while returning in the evening two miles from Wayzatta that the auto skidded and ran off a 12-foot embankment. Mrs. Hart was caught under the wreck. Her head was crushed, bu she did not lose conciousness. She screamed for aid in the darkness. The case was hopeless, as she sustained a fracture of the skull. She died at 9 o'clock this forenoon.
