Mexican Boy Killed In Truck AccidentEdward Moreno, 10, was killed in an accident Wednesday evening of last week about three miles south of spur. He and his father, Nicholas Moreno, had been in Spur Wednesday afternoon, and about 8:30 o´clock in the evening they started back home to the George A. Sloan place. About three miles from town they met a car and pulled over to the side of the road to pass it. The truck went too close to the road embankment and toppled over. The father was thrown from the truck, but the child was pinned down and killed almost instantly.
A Campbell´s ambulance brought the body to town where it was prepared for burial. Funeral services were held Thursday afternoon at Spur cemetery at five o´clock. Rev. C.R. Joynor, Baptist Pastor, conducted the services. Interment followed in Spur cemetery with Campbell´s Mortuary in charge of arrangements.
