      Mrs. William (Helena) Iutzi, Baden Killed In Car Crash

      Mrs. William Iutzi, aged 40, was almost instantly killed in a car accident near Elginfield on Sunday afternoon. Her husband was critically injured and two daughters, Erma and Merle, were also injured and taken to St. Joseph's Hospital, London. A son, Stanley, also a passenger in the car, was unhurt.

      William Steckley, of Milverton, owner and driver of the 1949 model car, in which the Iutzi family were passengers, suffered chest and facial injuries. Mrs. Alfred Christiansen, Battle Creek, Michigan, occupant of the other car involved in the accident, suffered from shock. Her husband, driver of the car, told police he was driving east, behind the Steckley car, and coming up, sounded his horn and then the accident occurred.

      The Steckley car went out of control after striking the American car, went into the ditch on the south side of the road, and then crossed the highway and hit a tree on the north side of the road.
      Mrs. Iutzi was thrown out when the car struck the tree and it is believed to have been killed instantly. The condition of Mr. Iutzi, who suffered spinal injuries and multiple bruises, is still considered serious. He is in an oxygen tent at St. Joseph's Hospital, London.

      The late Mrs. Iutzi was a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Moses Steinman, and was born in Wellesley Township on December 24, 1908. She was married to William Iutzi in October, 1927. Besides her husband and three children, she is survived by her parents and a brother Elmer Steinman, Milverton.

      The funeral was held yesterday afternoon with service at the Steinman A.M. Church, Baden, followed by interment in the Steinman Cemetery.
