Greenfield Man Is Fatally Injured in Tennessee Crash
Elmer Anderson, 60, 548 North Fifth Street, Greenfield, was fatally injured in a head-on collision near Lebanon, Tennessee Monday afternoon.
He was pronounced dead on arrival at MacFarland Hospital in Lebanon. The driver of the other vehicle involved faces four charges.
Scene of the crash was on U. S. Rt. 231, about 12 miles north of Lebanon. Lebanon itself is about 25 miles west of Nashville. Time of the crash was fixed at 12:48 P.M. Monday. Anderson was along in his car, a camper-trailer outfit. He was going south on a vacation trip.
The other vehicle was being driven by Robert M. Burton, 53, 504 Hill Street, Lebanon, a service station worker. He is in MacFarland Hospital.
Burton is charged with drunken driving, second degree murder (compares to vehicular homicide in Ohio), driving with a revoked license and possession of whiskey according to Tennessee State Patrol Sgt. Charles Douglas who investigated.
The vehicles hit head-on as the Burton vehicle apparently veered across the two-lane highway. Wreckage was scattered across the highway. Both vehicles were demolished.
The attending physician pronounced Anderson dead of cerebral concussion and chest injuries.
The body was taken to the Ligon-Bobo Funeral Home in Lebanon and transferred to Ohio on Tuesday.
The fatality was the seventh of the year in Wilson County, Tennessee.
Sgt. Douglas said witnesses told him that the Burton car "was all over the road" before the collision. Burton reportedly suffered arm injuries but was not believed to be serious.
Anderson was an employee of U. S. Shoe Corporation in Greenfield. The plant is idle for vacation.
An Army veteran of World War II, he was born in Xenia, November 24, 1908, the son of Alonzo and Ollie Robinette Anderson. He was married July 15, 1939, to Ethel Cook, who survives.
He was a member of the Lutheran Church of Xenia, the American Legion at Greenfield and the Greenfield Masonic Lodge.
Other survivors include a son, Richard T. Anderson, Leesburg (employed by the Hillsboro newspapers); a daughter, Mrs. Mansfield (Marilyn) Fabin, Greenfield; two brothers, Robert of Jamestown and William of Fairborn and two grandchildren.
He was predeceased by a sister.
Military funeral rites will be held at the Murray Funeral Home, Greenfield, at 2 P.M. Saturday, Rev. Clair Emerick officiating. Burial will be at Greenfield Cemetery.
Friends may call at the funeral home after 2 P.M. Friday.
