Arch M. Berry Jr., twenty-one, injured in an automobile accident on the Lee highway, north of Staunton, late Sunday night died in the King's Daughters' hospital Tuesday morning at six o'clock.

He was born in Augusta county, near Spring Hill; Oct. 2, 1917, a son of Mr. and Mrs. A. M. Berry. Besides his parents he is survived by three brothers, J. M., J. E., and F. R. Berry; a sister, Miss Nancy Lee Berry; and grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. J. C. Root of Mossy Creek.

Bectom, Eugene Hiner, Scott Hamrick Jr., Calr Carun and A. M. VanLear

Mr. Berry was a government cattle tester in Augusta and Highland counties. The accident happened Sunday night about eleven-thirty o'clock, and officers believe young Berry either went to sleep, or lost control of his car when it skidded on the wet pavement. The machine struck a tree and was practically demolished.

The driver suffered multiple injuries, but one at the base of the brain was described Monday by his physician as fatal.

This was the fifteenth highway fatality in Augusta County this year.
