COLLISION MAY BE CAUSE OF WOMAN'S DEATH

A Nephi woman likely has died as a result of an automobile accident, although a state medical examiner's report has yet to be completed, said Nephi City Police Chief Wayne Hoaldridge.

Myrtle Chambers, 63, was found dead in her home at 9:30 a.m. Sunday morning.Chambers, her husband, Bert E. Chambers, 66, Nephi, and grandchildren Cody, 10, Bobbi, 8, and Katie, 7, from Minersville, all were involved in an automobile collision Friday at 1000 North Main, Nephi, in front of Bert's Express.

At the time, Myrtle and Katie Chambers were thought not to have been injured in the accident, said Sgt. Chris Nieslen. However, when Myrtle died, a connection between her death and the accident was considered likely, he said.
