He was returning the son of a minister friend, Eric Johnson, 20, back to his home at Dubuque when the fatal accident occurred.  Two young women, students at the seminary, also were passengers.  

One of the young women was driving Hinshaw's car, a 1965 model Pontiac, when she lost control and slammed into a culvert.  The girls and Johnson remained in the car, but Linneous was thrown through the windshield.  He died about an hour after the accident.  The girls were transferred to a hospital in Davenport, and Johnson escaped serious injury.
