John Hudson was Killed
Instantly Saturday Afternoon
John Hudson was killed instantly while walking with the traffic on highway 69 between Armstrong and the Y south of Caddo when struck by an auto driven by Art Small as he got to the top of the hill. Small’s view of the man was blocked by the hill and an auto just ahead of him. Small was absolved of blame in the matter.
Hudson would have been 65 years of age this summer. He had worked at various places in and near Caddo, but had not relatives here.
Hudson’s body was hit by the bumper and radiator and was badly mangled, was knocked 50 feet away and Small’s car ran into the ditch. Two young women were riding with Small at the time, but were not hurt. Small is a student at STC.
The funeral was held at the Caddo Cemetery Chapel conducted by Rev. M. D. Gentry at 3 pm. Monday.
