CAR CRASH SUNDAY A.M. CLAIMS LIFE OF "GENE" HENRY
A popular young Cozad man, Norman "Gene" Henry, 26, was instantly killed Sunday morning in a tragic car-train crash one mile west of Cozad.
Gene and his father, Bill Henry, had spent the night fishing in the Blue Channel area and the two, in separate cars, were returning to Cozad at the time of the accident about 7:45. Investigating officials expressed the opinion that Gene didn't see the approaching west bound Union Pacific Streamliner due to the morning sun and drove his 195t3 Fort onto the tracks directly in front of the train.
The resulting crash completely demolished the car and hurled him nearly four hundred feet, when the force of the crash threw him out of the car.
The father, who witnessed the accident, rushed his son to the Cozad Community Hospital.
Gene is survived by his wife, the former Janet Rutledge of Lexington and two small children; his parents, Mr. and Mrs. William Henry; two brothers, Kenneth and Virgil and many other relatives in addition to a wide circle of friends.
Gene was a popular member of the "young set" in Cozad and his tragic death saddened the entire community. He had been employed at the Cozad Jack and Jill for several years.
