A wreck near tin City was the

three persons on Saturday night,
A gasoline oil tanker burst into
flames when it struck a car at a
rural crossroads five miles north of
WallfKgs on N. C. highway 11 at the
intersection of rund paved road
1148, at Son Murphy's Store just
South of Charity.
Witnesses said the flames reach
ed over 100 feet into the air and
were visible for 10 miles.
Donald Joyner of Kinston, driver
of the truck, was the only one saved
from the flaming wreckage by
rescue workers who gathered at the
scene of the crash within minutes
after it happened.

the mother were completely lost
due to the intensity of the flames.
Both the mother and the child were
burned beyond recognition.

eral Hospital in Kenansville. It was
found that he had an arm injury
and extensive internal injuries. He
was transferred to University Hos
pital in Chapel Hill. It is reported
that he is in serious condition.
The flames raged for over two
hours after the accident happened.
It was nearly three hours before the
wreckage could be moved from the
road so traffic could travel through

Takes Off Front Of Store-Man Unhurt
Stephen Miller, a colored man of
Kenansville, RFD had a most unus
ual wreck on Saturday afternoon at
about > p. m. The 1952 Chevrolet
which he was driving backed thro
ugh the front of Kenansville Drug
Store, tearing down the entire front
door and plate glass windows,
pushing tables and counters to the
back of the store and causing havoc
with bottles, boxes and thousands
of drug store items.
Very little damage was done to
the Chevrolet. There were not even
many dints in the car. An estimated
(10,000 damage was done to the
Miller was parked in front of the
bank in Kenansville. He was having
trouble starting his Chevrolet and
his wife got out of the car to go get
some help to start the car. While
she was gone he got the car started.
It is believed the accelerator got
hung as the car bolted up two steps
in front of the bank and hit an em
pty store beside the bank. Miller
changed the car to reverse, it bolt
ed backward down the block from
the bank to the drug store. It did
not hit anything except the bumper
of a parked car. Apparently when it I
got in front of the drug store a 1
left turn was made which backed it i
right into the center of the drug i
store when it stopped. Miller was j
not hurt. I
As is happened, there were no
customers in the store at the time i
only the workers Amos Brinson,
Earl Hatcher and Bobby Batts. No
one was hurt. Brinson was standing
behind the counter beside the car
when it stopped and told Miller to
cut off his motor. Hatcher and Batto
said they knew where they were
standing when the car started in.
