Glenrock Man Loses Life in Montana

Darrel Emery Potts, 23, of Glenrock, died Monday night in a Livingston, Mont. hospital after being critically injured in a motorcycle accident near that place. He apparently failed to round a curve, going off into a ditch where his machine hit an embankment throwing him over the handlebars against a post.

Funeral arrangements were not announced pending word from relatives.
