Miss Eulalia Scurlock Dies in Hospital Few Minutes

A UNIVERSITY EMPLOYEE
Mrs. S. F. Church Loses Control of Car and Crushes Girl Against Post on Walnut.
Miss Eulalia Scurlock, 1105 Paris Road, died at 8:15 o’clock this morning in Parker Memorial Hospital of injuries received a few minutes earlier when she was struck by a Ford sedan driven by Mrs. S.F. Church, who runs a boarding house at 607 Sanford Place.
Miss Scurlock was on her way to the University business office where she worked. She was crossing Christian College avenue at Walnut street as Mrs. Church was turning around the post to go back toward Christian College. The steering gear locked and the Ford crushed Miss Scurlock against the lamp post on the northwest corner. Miss Scurlock saw the car coming and screamed twice but could not get out of the way. She was rushed to Parker Memorial Hospital.
The shock was so great she did not regain consciousness, and died almost at once. No marks were found upon her body so doctors think there must have been severe internal injuries and concussion of the brain.
Miss Scurlock was 30 years old, and lived with her parents, Mr. and Mrs. R.P. Scurlock. She had three brothers: Robert, in Kansas City; Harry and Richard, who live here and one sister, Lillian, in St. Louis.
Because of the nervous condition of Mrs. Church she was not able to testify today at the inquest which was held at the courthouse. The inquest has been continued until 3 o’clock tomorrow.
Testimony at the inquest, which was begun at the courthouse at 2:30 o’clock, brought out that Miss Scurlock had been walking directly across the street and was not “jaywalking”; that, according to witnesses, no horn was sounded; that death was caused by a great number of internal hemorrliages; and that Mrs. Church said she was unable to control the machine because the steering wheel became locked so that she could not turn the wheels of the machine.
The testimony of L.H. Edwards, 1113 Paris road, an eye witness to the accident, brought out the first two statements and Dr. D.H. Dolley, professor of pathology at the School of Medicine, who conducted the autopsy, stated that he thought the accident was caused not by the blow but by the pressure which was exerted against the body while it was pinned between the car and the post.
