Crash Victim - Benjamin M. Bingham, 38, of 340 Thirteenth who was fatally injured in an auto collision at midnight last night on Washington between Fifteenth and Sixteenth streets. John F. Dole, of Boulder, Colo., driver of the other
machine, was in city jail today awaiting formal filing of involuntary manslaughter charges by the county attorney."
"Manslaughter Complaint Planned, Says County Attorney"
"Admits Drinking"
"Wife and Child Injured in Collision on Washington:
"Benjamin Moroni Bingham, 38, of 340 Thirteenth, was killed at approximately midnight last night to become the sixth
traffic fatality in Ogden in 25 days and County Attorney Glenn W. Adams was preparing an involuntary manslaughter complaint charging John F. Dole, Boulder, Colo., contractor with responsibility for the death.
"Mr. Bingham died just a few minutes after the accident and before he could be moved to a hospital. His wife and seven-year old daughter who were riding in his car when it allegedly was struck by Dole's machine, were taken to the hospital and treated for cuts and shock, then released.
"Mr. Adams reconstruction the accident today from testimony of eye witnesses, and declared that testimony, borne but by the police test for drunkenness, showed Mr. Dole was "very drunk."
"Witness said the Dole machine was traveling south on Washington between Fifteenth and Sixteenth about mid-block and suddenly turned as though to go east or to make a U-turn. Skid-marks show the Dole car hit the Bingham machine 12 1/2 feet beyond the double line which divides north and southbound traffic crossing one traffic lane to do so.
"After striking the Bingham car almost broadside, the Dole auto ricocheted into a car driven by E.C. Randall of 531 Washington, and grazed a fender of the third vehicle.
"The circumstances of this accident are the most aggravated that have come to my attention," the county attorney stated. "Urine tests and other evidence indicates that Dole was very drunk, crossed over onto the wrong side of the street and ran into the side of the car driven by Mr. Bingham.
"A person who drives while in this condition is a hazard on the highway and when he causes an accident resulting in death he should be punished. I am preparing a complaint charging Dole with involuntary manslaughter, an indictable misdemeanor, which is punishable by imprisonment in the county jail for not more than one year.
"If people would stay away from the wheels of automobiles when they have been drinking unfortunate accidents of this kind would not happen."
"Mrs. Bingham was treated at the hospital for lacerations of arm head and face and shock. Her daughter, Kay Lois Bingham, about seven, was found to have suffered only a severe bump. A doctor was called to the scene of the accident and pronounced Mr. Bingham's death due to a compound skull fracture and loss of blood, police said."
Traffic Officers R.A. Rich and C.S. Beckett were called to the scene at eleven-fifty-eight. They were joined there by Lieutenant D.B. Ballantyne, who resides nearby. Lieutenant W.K. Milligan, who took Mrs. Bingham to the hospital, and Detective George lS. Theobold, who was on duty at the time.
"In a statement made today to officers and the county attorney, Mr. Dole said he has been in Ogden about a year, having
contracted to construct the South Ogden conservation district piplines for the U.S. bureau of reclamation.
"He admitted purchasing two quarts of whiskey yesterday and admitted the possibility of the two quarts and another pint having been consumed by himself and some friends during the evening. He said his recollection of the accident is vague. Apparently he was uninjured in the crash which demolished the Bingham sedan and dented the front left fender and grillwork on his own heavy car.
"Officer Beckett said Mr. Bingham had lost a lot of blood when he and Officer Rich arrived on the scene and that the victim was bleeding then internally although still alive. He apparently had been thrown from his car when the impact whirled it around. Both doors on the driver's side of the Bingham car were torn off, and the entire side was crushed in like matchwood.
"Beckett declared the police car arrived only two or three minutes after receiving the call via radio and Dole was still seated in the driver's seat, clutching the wheel and dazed. "He was too drunk to have complete realization of what had happened," the officer stated.
"Mr. Bingham was an accountant employed at the California Packing Co. He was born in Ogden Sept 10, 1903, a son of Joseph and Martha Mortenson Bingham. He was educated in Ogden schools and graduated from Ogden high school.
"He was an active member of the L.D.S. church. He served as a missionary in France, 1925-1928 and was supervisor of ward teaching for one year. He was a member of the seventies in the new Mound Fort ward of Ogden stake.
"Mr. Bingham married Emma Anderson Nov. 18, 1931, in the Salt Lake Temple.
"Survivors Listed" "Surviving are his widow, daughter, Kay Lois, the parents and the following brothers and sisters, Joseph W. Bingham, Long Beach, Calif., Lawrence H. Bingham, and Mrs. Myrtle Crouch, Ogden; Chester H. Bingham, of Walnut Park, Calif.; Mrs. Esther Lavon Awerking of Whittier, Calif., Mrs. C.F. Actis of Butte, Mont.
"The body is at Lindquist & Sons mortuary."
