Steele, ND Two Car Collision Kills Six, Aug 1959


Steele, N.D. (UPI) - One of North Dakota's first traffic tragedies killed six persons on U.S. Highway 10, near Steele, N.D., Friday morning.
The dead are:
HARRY SASEK, 41, of St. James, Manitoba;
SASEK'S wife, VIVIAN, 38;
ARCHIE GROVES, 72, also from St. James;
GROVES' 65-year-old sister, of London, England;
RALE FRENCH, 55, Hammond, Ind.;
and FRENCH'S 49-year-old wife, ELIZABETH.
The Canadian travelers were riding in a car which collided with one carrying the Indiana party.
All died outright when the cars met head-on. There were no surviving witnesses to the crash.
Highway patrolmen said there were no skid marks to indicate what had happened.
The crash is the second worst in the state's history. A wreck last October near Minot took seven lives.
