Fla. Crash Kills One, Injures 3 Canfield Woman Is Victim as Auto Hits Trees A Canfield woman was killed and a Youngstown woman was injured Monday afternoon when their car swerved out of control on a rain-slicked highway just east of Callahan, Fla. Mrs. Carmen Grigsby, 59, of 4046 S. Canfield-Niles Road, a housekeeper at the Mahoning County Home, was killed instantly about 4 p.m. Mrs. John Hingell, 59, of 717 Steel St., is in fair condition with a severe cut of the left leg and body bruises in Humphreys Memorial Hospital, Fernandinda Beach, Fla., near Jacksonville. She underwent surgery at 10 p.m. Monday. Hospital authorities said she was in shock but seems to be responding to treatment. Two West Virginia women were injured in the smashup. Mrs. Beulah Krantz of South Charleston, w. Va., the driver, and Mrs. Mae Youell, 75, of Kincaid, W. Va., both are listed in fair condition in the hospital with cuts and bruises.
Left here Saturday Mrs. Alma Mitchell, a daughter, with whom Mrs. Grigsby lived, said her mother left Youngstown Saturday for Florida. She said they stopped at Charleston to pick up Mrs. Krantz and Mrs. Youell. Mrs. Krantz is a twin sister of Mrs. Grigsby, while Mrs. Youell is an aunt. Mrs. Hinzell is a friend. The four women had planned to visit Mrs. Krantz’s son, Louis Stone, in Tampa. Authorities said Mrs. Krantz apparently was passing another vehicle when she lost control, going off the road into a ditch and striking two trees. Mrs. Grigsby’s body was taken to the Oxley Funeral Home at Fernandinda Beach. The funeral home said Mrs. Grigsby died of internal injuries. She was unmarked except for a bruise near the ear.
West Virginia Native Mrs. Grigsby was born Jan. 14, 1901, in Fire Creek, W. Va., a daughter of Frank and Josie Darlington and went to live with Mrs. Mitchell about five years ago after residing on Mahoning Ave. for a number of years. She had been a housekeeper at Mahoning County Home about three years. She was a member of Smith Corners Evangelical United Brethren Church. Her husband, Forrest, died in 1953. Besides Mrs. Mitchell, she leaves two other daughters, Mrs. Anne Heeter of Youngstown and Mrs. Catherine Scheufler of Poland; five sons, Vernon of Cleveland, Charles and Bruce, both of Dunbar, W. Va.; Jerry of St. Petersburg, Fla., and Wayne of Girard; her twin sister, Mrs. Krantz; a sister, Mrs. Margaret McElhinny of Elk View, W. Va.; a brother, Fred of Amarillo, Tex., and 27 grandchildren.
