Kotecki, Evelyn T. (? - 20 December 1970)

The death late Sunday afternoon of a Thorp area woman brought the Clark County highway death toll for the year to 10, still six under the 1969 total.

Dead in a two vehicle crash was Evelyn T. Kotecki, 41, of Rt. 1 Thorp.

Ronald G. Tetzner, 17, also of Thorp, driver of the other auto, received injuries.

The autos collided at 4:10 p.m. at an intersection of town roads two miles east and one mile north of Thorp, in the Town of Withee.

The westbound Tetzner vehicle collided with the passenger side of Mrs. Kotecki’s car as it was traveling north. The force of the impact spun the Kotecki auto completely around, and the driver was thrown from the passenger side of the car. Officer Frank Sarafin, in his report, stated: “The Kotecki auto failed to yield the right-of-way at the uncontrolled intersection.”

Both vehicles ended up in the northwest section of the intersection, off the roadway. The 1964 Kotecki sedan was totally wrecked. The front end of the Tetzner station wagon received considerable damage.
