Norton Many Dies in Auto Mishap

Norton, VA., Sept 12 - A 76 year-old man was struck and killed by an automobile here this morning to become Wise County's second fatality within twenty-four hours.

Tuesday, a five year -old boy was killed instantly when he was run over by a town trash truck.

Henry Stipes, Route 1, Coeburn, was struck at about 6:30 a. m. as he walked along Highway 23 one mile west of here. He died about two hours later in a Norton hospital.

Trooper Douglas Myers Jr. gave this version of the accident.
He said Stipes was walking on the hard surface and two cars were meeting at the same place. The car on the side of the road on which Stipes was walking slowed down almost to a stop to avoid hitting the man. A third car driven by Alpon Pardee Lawson, Coeburn, rounded the curve behind the car which slowed down for Stipes.

The trooper said Lawson cut over to the shoulder of the road to miss the car and at that moment Stipes stepped from in front of the car to the shoulder of the road and into the path of Lawson's car.

Stipes was taken to the Park Avenue Hospital where he died at 8:40 a.m. today.
