Earl D. Johnson, 1909 Ohio Avenue, 42 years old, a structural steel worker for the Darby Construction Co. of Kansas City, died at 10:10 o'clock last night in St. John's Hospital from injuries received Monday afternoon in an accident at the Spencer Chemical Plant, near Riverton.
Johnson died without regaining consciousness. Details of the accident have not been established, but Johnson was reported to have fallen or struck his head on concrete while running from falling iron, or else was struck by the iron and felled. Witnesses reported the accident occurred so fast that they were not certain of exactly what happened.

Surviving are his widow, Mrs. Mona Johnson; his mother, Ora Johnson of 1309 Grand Avenue; a stepson, Billy F. LeMaster, 912 Sergeant Avenue and a brother, Leslie Johnson, of Hoquiem, Wash.
