Haywood County improved its
record on the highways in 1950
compared to the previous year.
At midnight last night, the coun
ty closed out the old year with th
toll showing seven dead and 28 in
jured. Though the record is still tragic,
officers were encouraged by toe
comparison with last year's.
In 1949, highway accidents in the
county killed eight men, women,
and children, and left 42 others in
jured. Up to noon today, the county's,
record for 1951 was spotless.
The New Year weekend, usually
a critical one like other holiday
weekends, failed to produce a re
port of a single serious accident :
Last fatal accident which occur

Two accidents cost four of the
seven lives lost last year.

young daughter lost their lives in
the Cruso section when they wer
struck by a car as they were
