Miss Mary Kana, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Steve Kana, former residents of the Dubina community, was killed in an automobile wreck near Bay City last week, when the car ran into a train.
Miss Kana was riding with a companion when the accident happened. It is reported the car was approaching a railroad crossing and seeing the train the driver attempted to stop the car, but the brakes failed to work and the car plunged into the train.
Miss Kana received injuries from which she died later at a hospital.
The Kanas now live in Midfield and Miss Mary had employment in Bay City. Friends here regret to learn of her death.
