September 26, 1918
   Mrs. Jere P. Egan, Plush was instantly killed Monday morning when the car in which she was riding backed off the grade in Bullard Canyon near the top of the mountain. Mrs Egan, together with her husband who was driving the car, M. M. Barry and Tom Murphy had started home and just rounded the curve a short distant this side of the summit when the accident occurred. When starting up the pitch at that point Mr. Egan "killed" his engine, and the car commenced backing. The brakes failed to hold the car, and it ran over the embankment, toppling over backwards and landed on its side. At the point where the accident occurred there is a drop of six or eight feet, and Mr. Egan is of the opinion that the pump from the car struck Mrs. Egan in the temple crushing her skull. None of the other occupants of the car were injured in the least, but Mrs. Egan breathed but a few times before the end came.
   Mr. Barry jumped from the car as soon as it commenced backing and attempted to stop it, but without avail. Mr. Murphy was unable to get out in time and he went over with the car, and about all that he remembers is seeing the car turning over above him. Mr. Egan was thrown from the car in some manner, and it seems miraculous that any of the party, with the exemption of Mr. Barry, escaped death. The road was quite slippery from the effect of the rains, and the doubtless accounts for the accident.
   Mrs. Egan was born in Ireland April 15, 1889 being 29 years, 5 months and 8 days of age at the time of her death She was the daughter of John Mahoney, of Ireland, and came to this country a few years ago. She Married to Mr. Egan November 5, 1914 to which union a son was born. He passed away a few months ago. Mrs. Egan leaves a brother and two sisters in this country to mourn her loss. Dick Mahoney and Mrs. Tom Murphy and Mrs. Jas Kiely besides her husband and a large number of friends.
