Aged Huckster Dies In Crash

Adams Striett, about 82 years of age and said to be a vegetable
peddler from the Phoenix district, was killed instantly shortly after
2 o'clock yesterday afternoon when the small truck he was driving
toward Prescott overturned on the Black Canyon highway near Canon.

The accident is believed to have occurred when the machine hit a soft
shoulder on the road and became unmanageable.

Striett was accompanied at the time by his son-in-law, W. J. Skelton,
of this city, who escaped with minor injuries.

The body was brought here where it was being held today pending
funeral arrangements.

Coroner Gordon Clark was called to the scene of the accident yesterday

Transcriber's note: Mr. Striett is buried in an unmarked grave at the
Citizens Cemetery in Prescott, Arizona.
