NEWSPAPER ARTICLE - San Mateo, California Times; May 13, 1970:

Two San Mateo Sisters Die After R. C. Traffic Accident
A luncheon outing ended tragically yesterday when two elderly San Mateo sisters were fatally injured in a Redwood City traffic accident.
Mrs. Daisy Summers, 83 and her sister, Mrs. Bertha Hargett, 79, both of 1510 Lorraine Avenue in San Mateo, died early today at Kaiser Hospital, Redwood City, of internal injuries suffered in the crash.
A third sister, Mrs. Nona Darnall, 81 also of the same address, was seriously injured and is reported in fair condition at Mills Memorial Hospital. Also injured was Mrs. Dora Sherer, 55, 438 Cavanaugh Street, San Mateo, and Mrs. Shirley A. Morris, 59 1121 Juanita Avenue, Burlingame. Mrs. Sherer is in fair condition at Mills Hospital with a head injury. Mrs. Morris was treated for cuts at Kaiser Hospital. The accident occurred at 12:20 p. m. at the intersection of Woodside Expressway and Broadway when a car driven by Mrs. Morris made a left turn from the center eastbound lane of the expressway and was struck by an oncoming pickup truck driven by Laurence O. Clark, 36, a Castro Valley cabinet maker.
Policemen Pete McDonald and Vincent Truscelli said that Mrs. Morris apparently became confused by the traffic signal arrow and made the left turn from the optional center lane while the arrow was showing green for straight ahead traffic only.
Police say the arrow system which sometimes permits a left turn from the center lane, poses a safety hazard at the intersection with drivers not only making left turns on the straight ahead arrow, but stopping on the green arrow to wait for the left turn arrow. The signal system was installed by the state and is maintained by the division of highways.
Lucheon-bound
Mrs. Morris told the police officers that she was making the turn onto Broadway with the intention of going to a nearby restaurant where the the women intended to have lunch.
Mrs. Hargett is survived by a daughter, Mrs. Velma Heinrich, of 627 Vera Avenue, Redwood City.
