1934
Coal Truck Accident - Halifax Twp, Dauphin Co, PA
Detail >>
On Thursday morning, September 13, 1934, at 1:30 o'clock, a truck loaded with coal to be delivered to Baltimore left the highway about three miles south of Millersburg. It crashed into a tree and burst into flames. In the impact, coal was thrown ahead of the truck a distance of thirty-five feet. The crash crushed the cab of the truck, pinning the driver, 17 year old Walter Ross of Shamokin, by the leg. The driver's helper, LeMar Hoy, attempted to rescue Ross from the burning truck. But, his efforts were in vain because the driver was pinned fast inside the cab. Hoy suffered burns of his hands and back and lacerations of his shoulder from the attempted rescue. Hoy was found following the accident walking on the highway in a dazed condition by Charles Bressi. He was taken to Millersburg by Bressi, who reported the accident to Chief of Police Stakley, who in turn summoned the Millersburg Fire Company. Upon arrival of the firemen, the flames had completely consumed the truck holding the dead body of Ross as prisoner. After the flames were extinguished, the badly burned body of Ross was taken from the wreckage. Dr. Myron Todd, of Halifax, deputy Coroner, was then notified and, after viewing the body and the wreckage, was of the opinion that the unfortunate victim was instantly killed by the accident. The body was then turned over to W.J. Minier, undertaker of Millersburg. It was the opinion of Officer Stakley that the accident occurred when both Ross and Hoy fell asleep in the moving vehicle. The truck was owned by Anna Veggiano, of Shamokin.
