Ben. T. Epps hurt and Otis Camp of Winder crushed.

Last Thursday evening just as the sun was sinking behind the hills, Mr. Ben. T. Epps and Otis Camp,Jr., of Winder,
were preparing to land after being in the air with Mr. Epps
plane, crashed into the bank injuring Mr.Epps and the death of Mr.Camp.
Ben was piloting the machine, who was bruised, cut and suffered a mangled leg. It was at first thought he had suffered a concussion of the brain, his leg was almost crushed
almost to a pulp, but physicians at his bedside say that his leg can be saved.
Mr. Otis Camp,Jr., son of Sheriff Camp of Barrow county,
was notified immediately after the accident, but before he could reach Athens, the young man was dead.
The funeral of young Camp was conducted from the Christian church at Winder Sunday afternoon, and interment in the church cemetery.
Otis was taking lessons under Mr.Epps, this was his third lesson. He was 17 years of age and a student of the Winder High School.
