Conway - Marjorie Owen, aged 14, was injured fatally at 3:30 Sunday afternoon when the car in which she was riding, driven by her brother, Hubert Owen aged 16, overturned.
The accident occurred at the intersection of Clifton and Duncan streets in the residential section. The girl was a daughter of Wilkey M Owen, rural carrier, and Mrs. Owen. She was a student in Conway Junior High School and celebrated her fourteenth birthday Sunday.
Just before the Owen car attempted to turn from Clifton into Duncan street, Boyd Montgomery, aged 16, of Broken Bow, Okla., in another car, attempted to pass the Owen car. According to his version, Owen did not give a turn signal and when his car swerved to turn, he was forced to the curb. He could not say whether his car struck the Owen car. Miss Owen was thrown out of the door and the top of the car crushed her chest. She was taken to the Faulkner County Hospital where she died at 4 p.m.
Reda Owen, aged 19, a sister of Marjorie, was another occupant of the car and suffered cuts and bruises on her head and legs.
Dorothy Mae Owen, 12 year old daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Owen of Alma, and Jane Smith of Conway, other occupants of the car were uninjured.
