TRUCK DRIVER KILLED. Hartford City, Aug. 18.---
Sidney Faulkner, 40, laundry truck driver of this city, was killed early this morning when his automobile he was driving struck an iron beam on the side of a bridge five and one-half miles southeast of Hartford City.
The beam was driven back through the car and disemboweled Faulkner. It is believed he died instantly. So securely was he pinned into the car by the beam that it was necessary to release him by means of an acetylene torch.
Mrs. W. H. Wolf, 32, living east of Hartford City accompanied Faulkner, but escaped with severe sprains and bruises. She was treated at the Black County Hospital here and then released to her home.
Faulkner’s funeral will be held Tuesday morning at 10 o’clock here and the body will be removed to Rothwell, Ky., Tuesday night, where burial will be Wednesday.
Faulkner is survived by his widow here and two sisters, two half-sisters and two half-brothers of Kentucky.
