Park.

Kim Ogden, 14, of Colonial Terrace, Knoxville, was pronounced dead shortly after she was taken to
Collins Memorial Hospital.

She is the daughter of Stephen Ogden, Rt. 1, Attica, and Patricia Selvy, Colonial Terrace. A hospital spokesman said medical staff worked for a half hour attempting to revive her after the ambulance
brought her to the hospital.

Rescued was Kathy Frost, 15, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. William Frost, 509 E. Douglas St., Knoxville, reported in good condition at Collins; Jack R. Smith, 16, and Dan Camarillo, 20, both of Des Moines, were transferred to Des Moines in stable condition Saturday.

County Deputy Merle Schlotterback said the police officers found the car at 11 p.m. on the county road when they were on routine patrol between the Veterans Administration Hospital and the ALCO store.

He said the car had the switch on and was out of gas. The deputy said one of the
youths told officers they stopped there at about 8:30 p.m.

Schlotterback said the police notified the sheriff’s department and called for the Knoxville Rescue Unit and Capital City Ambulance, all of which dispatched emergency vehicles to the scene.
