TRUCK DRIVER IS CHARGED IN DEATH OF MRS. KOCIAN

A charge of negligent homicide was filed in the Fayette County Court in La Grange against W. A. Preseler, truck driver, in connection with the death of Mrs. Vlasta Kocian, who was killed when the car in which she was riding collided with a truck driven by Kocian.

Mr. Kocian, husband of the dead woman, was also badly injured as was their daughter, Anna, who received a fracture to both legs. The daughter is still in the Renger hospital at Hallettsville.

The accident happened a short distance west of Bob’s place near Schulenburg. Pressler was also charged with driving without a merchant operator’s license.

Vlasta Lauer Kocian, 7 Jun 1913-3 May 1943, is buried in Flatonia.
