Special to The Tribune

MURRAY A 17-year-old youth was killed late Friday when he was crushed under a pickup truck which went out of control after rounding a sharp curve near 1st West on 2nd Avenue.

Three other youths were injured. One re-mained in a hospital Saturday.

Daniel L. Decker, 17, son of Mr. and Mrs. Larry S. Decker. 396 E. 6240 South, was dead on arrival at Cottonwood Hospital.

Caught in Wheel

Terry Lee Stoddard, 15, son of Mr. and Mrs. E. B. Stoddard, 6366-300 East, suffered a broken pelvis when he was thrown from the bed of the truck and was caught in the wheel well between the tire and the fender, Officer Gary Pedersen said.

Released from the hospital after treatment were Richard G. Denney, 16, son of Mr. and Mrs. Glen Denney, 6288-400 East, the driver, and Scott George Talbot, 15, son of Mrs. Maxine L. Talbot, 139 E. 6100 South.

In Back of Truck

Officer Pedersen said the truck was westbound on 2nd Avenue. After rounding the curve, the Denney youth lost control and the truck rolled to right side of the road, landing on its right side.

Both the Decker and Stodard youths were in the back of the vehicle, the investigating officer said.
