DIES FOLLOWING MINOR ACCIDENT
Thurman Loudermilk, age 61, of Cartersburg, dropped dead Thursday morning at the Town Hall in Plainfield while he was reporting a minor automobile accident which occurred earlier in the morning.
Loudermilk, driving a 1948 Chevrolet, was involved in an accident with a semi-trailer and an Indiana Railways Bus as they were attempting to pass on U.S. 40 near Belleville. All vehicles were slightly damaged, but were able to continue their trip.
While the three men were reporting the accident in Plainfield, Mr. Loudermilk slumped and died within a few minutes, apparently from heart ailment.
Surviving are the widow, Gertrude, and two daughters, Mildred and Norma. He was also a brother of Mrs. Leota Drake of Cleveland, Ohio, Mrs. Alma Smedley of Smedley, and James Loudermilk of Brazil.
Services were conducted Sunday morning at the Cartersburg Methodist Church. Burial was in Croys Creek Cemetery, Putnam County.
