Magnolia Man Killed In Accident

Posted by wlpo on November 17, 2009

A 72 year old man from Magnolia was killed yesterday in a car crash.

Investigators think Willard Ghrist was driving north on Route 89 when for whatever reason, he crossed into the other lane of traffic, went into a ditch and hit a field entrance causing his car to overturn.  He was taken to St. Margaret’s Hospital where he was pronounced dead.

The accident happened yesterday around noon.
