Police: Couple Married 68 Years Killed In Car Wreck, Found Holding Hands

SPOKANE, Wash. (CBS Seattle) – An elderly couple who died in a car accident  were found in the wreckage holdings hands.

Floyd and Margaret Nordhagen were killed when they pulled in front of a pickup truck on a highway north of Spokane.

State troopers say they had to ask Margaret to let go of Floyd so they could get him out of the car.

Friends told KREM News that Floyd always bragged about Margaret and how pretty she was. The couple was married for 68 years in July.

“I don’t know if they were holding hands before he passed, or if she grabbed him afterwards but it doesn’t matter,” added family friend “Britches” Peden. “They would have been holding hands if they could. so that’s the way we all want to remember them.”

Peden said he used to help the Nordhagen’s take care of the farm and ranch land in North Spokane County. Floyd loved his cattle like pets added Peden.

The Nordhagen’s are survived by their four children, eleven grandchildren and 23 great-grandchildren.
