Two Local Youths Die in Car, Truck Crash
Third Man Killed and Boy Hurt
Two area men were killed in a headon collision of a car and a panel truck on Highway 4 near Deloit in western Iowa yesterday afternoon.

They are Dale Solberg, 23, son of Mrs. Francis Dahna of Estherville, and Robert Carlson, 23, son of Mr. and Mrs. Carl Milton Carlson of rural Armstrong.

A third person, Allan Wienstein, Omaha, Neb., was also killed in the accident. He was a nephew of Harry Stoller of Spirit Lake.

Weinsten was headed south in a truck owned by Stoller Fisheries of Spirit Lake and accompanied by his seven-year-old son, David. It was not determined which of the Iowa men was driving the car.

State Highway Patrolmen said the vehicles apparently met headon, but the cause of the accident was not determined. The Weinsten boy was thrown clear of the wreckage. He was listed in fair condition at a hospital in Denison.

Authorities at Spirit Lake said Weinsten, who had worked for Stoller Fisheries for several years had loaded the truck with fish at Stollers yesterday afternoon and was on his way back to Omaha.

The Weinsten boy who was thrown from the wreckage was not located for some time after the accident. Highway Patrol checked with Spirit Lake by police radio and learned that the boy had been with his father when last seen.

The triple fatality raised Crawford Countyís number of traffic deaths this year to 10.

Funeral services for Solberg will be held at 10:30 a.m. Wednesday for members of the family at the Reese Funeral Home in Estherville.

Public services will be 1:30 p.m. at the Estherville Lutheran Church with the Rev. Roy Hendrickson officiating.

Burial will be at the Estherville Lutheran cemetery.

He was born Sept. 20, 1940, at Armstrong, the son of Mrs. and Mrs. Otto Solberg. He was educated at the Iowa School for the Deaf, Council Bluffs, and the Iowa City Handicapped School.

He made his home with his parents on a farm four miles south of Ringsted until his fatherís death in 1956. He then moved to Estherville in 1957.

He was employed for a time by Dr. Roy Turner of Armstrong.

He is survived by a brother, Ronald Solberg, of Estherville, and a half brother, Donald Dahna of Estherville. His mother and step-father, Mr. and Mrs. Francis Dahna, Estherville, also survive.

Friends may call at the Reese Funeral home after 10 a.m. Tuesday until noon Wednesday when the body will be taken to lie in state at the church. (Estherville Daily News, Estherville, IA, October 21, 1963)
