THE DEATH OF RONALD L. NYDEGGER
KILLED BY TRAIN, Monday Evening, December 7, 1968
Tragedy draped a pall of grief and sadness over the town of Clark's Hill following a weekend car-train crash that killed four young high school boys. A car, bearing, Stephen R. Scanlon, Johnnie L. Stephens, Edwin H. Whitlock, Thomas J. Stingley (who survived the crash) and Donald Lee Nydegger, returning home from a high school dance, was hit by a Norfolk and Western freight train just outside the Clarks Hill city limits at 11:20 p.m. Saturday, killing four of the youth. Reconstructing the pre-crash events, investigating State police said the five were returning home from a post-basketball game sock-hop dance at Wainwright High School. The car was southbound on County Road 975 East and according to officers, was driven into the path of the oncoming eastbound,92-car N&W freight train at an intersection just northeast of the Clarks Hill city limits.
