Gladwin man dies from injuries sustained in Dec. 3, mishap

 

A 76-year-old Gladwin man who was seriously injured in a 2-car mishap earlier last month died last Tuesday at MidMichian Regional Medical Center in Midland. Harold Leroy Aleshire has been in the coronary care unit at MRMC since he was injured in the accident on M-61 near Lakeview Dr. in Hay Township.

 

Gladwin State Police said Aleshire was traveling east on M-61 about 8:15" a.m. on Dec. 3, when he attempted a left turn onto Lakeview Dr. and struck a westbound vehicle driven by Craig Potts of Standish. Aleshire received emergency treatment at MRMC-Gladwin and was transferred to Midland, where he was admitted for treatment of serious internal injuries, authorities said.

 

Aleshire became the 9th traffic related fatality in the county this year and the 5th within the past 3

months. His obituary appears on page 2. Fatalities resulting from traffic accidents in Gladwin County increased dramatically in 1990 from the previous year. But local law enforcement authorities say it's hard to draw conclusions in the rising

number of traffic deaths.

county as the result of motor vehicle accidents during 1990, compared with 1 traffic fatality the previous year. That's an increase of 800 percent. Nine traffic deaths is the most in the county since 1984, when 9 people died in car crashes, also. Statewide, traffic fatalities increased this year from the 1989 totals. Holiday weekend fatalities were also higher in 1990. However, significant reductions in highway fatalities have been recorded since Operation Care, a traffic safety program, was launched by police and volunteer agencies in 1977.

 

The State Police blamed the increase on more driving, but also said drinking and driving and the

failure by many to use seat belts contributed heavily to the death toll in 1990. However, local police officers say it's tough to draw conclusions to the county's large number of fatalities last year. Prior to 1989, there was 2 traffic deaths in 1988 and 5 in 1987.

CHARLES ARTHUR CORNELL (14 MAY 1927 - 2 JULY 1961) - New Addition Lot # 111.

 

KILLED IN HOLIDAY CRASH

 

A Sage Township man lost his life early Sunday morning when he was thrown out of his car and it rolled on top of him following a collision on M-61 east of Gladwin. Killed in the crash was Charles Arthur Cornell, 34, father of four children, Sheriff's officers said Cornell's vechicle was struck in the rear by one driven by Linwood Clark, 25, of Gladwin. They said Cornell apparently lost control of his vehicle after the collision, and it went into the ditch and rolled over. Cornell was tossed out and his car turned over and came to rest with all four wheels in the air, pinning him underneath.

Riding with Cornell were Mr. and Mrs. Clyde Wheeler, who escaped with severe bruises, Mrs Wheeler told officers she was also thrown from the car and that she pulled her husband to safety through a broken window and tried to aid Cornell. They were examined at the Gladwin Hospital and released. Mrs. Wheeler suffered lacerations and bruises to her leg and shoulder and Wheeler chest injuries.

Motorists and nearby residents arriving at the scene tried to push and roll the car over to free Cornell and a car was also used but the effort failed. The rescuers were driven back when the smashed vehicle burst into flames and halted further attempts. An autopsy was held Sunday to determine the cause of death. Coroner Gerald Miner said the examination indicated the victim died of suffocation from the weight of the car and inhalation of smoke. Death apparently came swiftly, he said. The Conservation department's fire truck was called to extinguish the blaze before a wrecker could pull the car over.

Officers said, Clark told them he was following the Cornell car and suddenly saw the light of a car approaching on the wrong side of the highway. He said he hit his brakes and pulled his car to the right at the same time Cornell appartently saw it and attempted to brake his vehicle. He said his car struck the Cornell automobile on the right rear corner with its left front corner and apparently caused it to careen out of control. Clark and his passenger, James Hinkley, received only minor injuries.

A lifetime county resident, Charles Arthur Cornell was born in Beaverton on May 14, 1927, and was married to the former Miss Dorothy Willford on July 4, 1945, in Beaverton. He had been employed as a crane operator for Cornell Construction and Ernest Korkoske, and spent two years in the armed services.
