Florence, AZ Two Car Collision, Oct 1964
CRASH KILLS TUCSONIAN, SIX OTHERS.
Seven persons were killed, including a Tucson woman, in one of Arizona's worst traffic accidents of the year on State Highway 287 Saturday night about five miles west of Florence.
The deaths raised the state's 1964 traffic toll to 467, sixty-one more than on the same date last year.
The victims were:
MRS. THELMA KINCHSULER, 65, of Tucson;
FREDERICK LAKE, 39, of Florence, and his wife, JUANITA, 39;
ROSALEEN GIDDENS, 25, of Florence, and her daughters, ELIZABETH, 4, and BEATRICE, 2;
and FRANCES MORALES, 43, of Las Vegas, Nev.
MRS. KINCHSULER, LAKE'S mother, resided at 2731 N. Eastgate Dr. The Cole and Maude Mortuary in Coolidge is handling arrangements pending the arrival of Mrs. Kinchsuler's family.
The Arizona Highway Patrol said MRS. GIDDENS' car apparently failed to stop at the intersection and collided with the car driven by ARTHUR MORALES, 45.
