Workman Run Over By
Motor Car and Killed

William H. Hickman, of Kirby, Meets
Almost Instant Death on Waynes-
burg-Mt. Morris Road.

William H. Hickman, aged 48 years, of Kirby, was almost instantly killed Saturday afternoon, while at work on the Waynesburg-Mt. Morris road, near Kirby. He was engaged in making a concrete headwall when a runaway motor truck ran over him.

Hickman was in the employ of the Thomas Cronin Construction company, of Pittsburgh, and was fastening a wire at the base of the form when the accident occurred. The truck was being towed down the hill by another of the company trucks. At the foot of the hill, the driver of the front truck applied the brakes too quickly for the one in the rear, leaving enough slack in the town rope to enable the truck being towed to break loose. The machine speeding down the grade struck Hickman, crushing him to death.

Mr. Hickman was a son of Mr. and Mrs. Frank M. Hickman, of Kirby. He was a rig painter by trade and had worked for several years for the South Penn Oil company and for other companies in that section.

Besides his parents, he is survived by his wife, Mrs. Sadie Wildman Hickman, and three children, Warren and Christine, at home, and Mrs. Thelma Black, of Greensboro. He leaves two sisters, Mrs. Fordyce Blaker, of Mt. Morris, and Mrs. James Vance, of Whiteley. He was a member of the Methodist Protestant church and the I.O.O.F. lodge.
