Obituary; Norfolk Daily News, 10/27/1960, page 1; "NORFOLK MAN CRUSHED TO DEATH IN TWO-TRUCK CRASH, Earnest Strong, 80, Norfolk, was crushed to death about 2:20 p.m. Wednesday 10/26 in a two-truck crash at a county road intersection 10 miles south of Norfolk on the South First Street road.
Strong's pickup truck collided with a Gerhold Concrete Products Co. truck loaded with about three cubic yards of wet cement and driven by Harold R. Ryan, 219 Monroe Ave. Ryan and his son, John, 5, escaped with cuts and bruises.
Strong was traveling north and Ryan was making a right turn after traveling east. Reuben Gall, Madison farmer, was the first person to reach the scene of the fatal accident, which was investigated by State Trooper Charles Howell, Norfolk, and Deputy Sheriff Jim Drahots, Madison.
The accident increased the 1960 highway death toll to 27 in the 19 county area served by the State Patrol from Norfolk headquarters, compared to 46 a year ago. This was Madison County's fifth highway death of this year.
