Cheshire: George Ray Cheshire, one of the four persons injured in the car-truck crash near Central last Thursday morning, died at the Grant County General Hospital on Saturday morning without ever regaining consciousness. The deceased was the driver of the lightpick-up truck which, according to information given, veered across the highway while traveling west about one mile west of the Central highway junction, to crash headon into the light car being driven east by Arnulfo Holguin, State Health Dept. employee. Time of the accident was fixed at about 10 a.m. A companion of Cheshire's, Mrs. Paula Speiss, wife of a Ft. Bayard patient, was seriously injured and has remained in a critical condition at the hospital since that time. Most fortunate of the four was Dr. JohnC. Mitchell, district health officer, passenger in the state owned car driven by Mr. Holguin. While painfully injured, his condition has rapidly improved and at present he is recuperating in the hospital and conducts some of his official business there in connection with the health department. The condition of Mr. Holguin, a well known Silver City young man, has caused some concern. However, he regained consciousness Tuesday of this week and hope is now held for his complete recovery. Dr. W.A. Jones, an El Paso brain surgeon, was hurriedly called to attend the accident victims. He remained throughout the night following the wreck. The terrific crash occurred at a spot on the highway which in itself had potential menace. The shoulders at that point are narrow and on both sides of the highway there are deep banks covered with jagged stones. It is believed that Mr. Holguin was aware of the approaching truck and attempted to get out as far as possible as skid marks indicated such. The light car was driven about 20 feet down the rocky bank and practically demolished. The truck remained on the highway with its engine ripped entirely loose and thrown outside. Both occupants were also thrown out. The crash was heard by Richard Dannelly who resides near the sceneof the crash. He quickly called Deputy Sheriff Lester Williams of Central. Chief of Police Wallace Tapley of Bayard also responded to the call for aid and with Deputy Williams arranged to have the victims removed by ambulance to the hospital. State Patrolman Ed Ball, with members of the sheriff's staff, investigated the accident. A late report given on the condition of the survivors of the accident place Mrs. Speiss on the very critical list; Arnulfo Holguin as conscious and to recover, and Dr. Mitchell as coming along fine. Mrs. Speiss remains unconscious.

Telles and his wife testified Monday that they had closed the bar because the Castillos were creating a disturbance. Witnesses said the Castillos then moved to the front porch and watched Corea. Corea told Dillard that Manuel Castillo threatened him and he went to his house and got a .30-.30rifle and returned. Dillard reported that Corea told him that he (Corea) told Castillo to keep away from him and that Castillo charged him. Corea was reported to have fired twice, the first bullet striking a corner of the bar building and peppering Albert Castillo with broken stucco and the second hitting Manuel Castilloin the chest, killing him almost instantly.
