A Sulphur Springs woman was killed and three others injured in a one-vehicle crash in Kansas Monday night. Mary Hall, 68, of Sulphur Springs died at the crash scene, and her husband, Glen Hall, 73, was flown to a trauma center in Wichita, Kan., for treatment of a head injury.


The Halls’ daughter and grandson, Kristie and T.J. Hoffman, were also taken to the hospital, but later released. They reported some soreness and a few cuts, but no serious injuries, the Halls’ daughter Melonie Findley reportedly told Pastor Tom Frisbie Tuesday.
“It’s a real tragedy. They were on the way to his brother’s funeral. It’ll be tomorrow [Wednesday]. Mary was killed and he was injured,” said the Rev. Frisbie, pastor at Fellowship Christian Church, where Mary was secretary and Glen is a chairman on the church board.
The Halls and Hoffmans were traveling Monday night to Hugoton, Kan., where they were to attend the funeral of Glen’s brother Wednesday. About four miles from the  small rural community located in the southwest corner of Kansas the Halls called “home,” the car overturned in the rough weather, reportedly due to icy conditions, according to Frisbie.
Mary Hall died in the crash. Kristie and T.J. Hoffman were taken to a hospital, checked out and released with only “bumps and bruises.” Emergency responders used rescue tools to cut Glen Hall out of the car. He was flown by medical helicopter to a hospital in Wichita from the crash site. He sustained three broken ribs and ear damage which required reconstructive surgery. Aside from scrapes and bruising, soreness and some swelling around injured part of his head, Glen was reported to be awake and cognizant. Doctors told family members, barring any unforeseen complications, Glen Hall could be released from the hospital as early as Tuesday night or Wednesday, Frisbie said Tuesday evening.
A graveside service for Mary Hall is slated for 2 p.m. Friday in Kansas. Paul’s Funeral Home in Hugoton is in charge of arrangements.
A memorial service will be held Sunday at 3 p.m. at Fellowship Christian Church in Sulphur Springs so that her family and friends in the area can remember her and offer condolences to her family.
Mary and Glen Hall are the former owners of Sears in Sulphur Springs, operating the business from the spring of 2001 through 2005. They are both past members of Northeast Texas Choral Society. In addition to serving as secretary at Fellowship Christian Church, Mary Hall also served as secretary for His Kids Learning Center, which is housed at the church.
