Obituary of Lawrence Collier, The Spartanburg Herald, 12/29/1933, Pg A10, "Inquest Held In Death Of Collier"
Inquest Held In Death Of Collier
Funeral Services For Man To Be Held Today At Fingerville
Lawrence Collier, 29-year-old Arcadia Mill employee who died at a local hospital late Tuesday night of injuries which he suffered Monday afternoon when the car in which he was riding was struck by a Southern Railway passenger train at the Green Street crossing "came to his death by being hit by Southern Railway train No. 4," a coroner's jury decided yesterday at an inquest which was held at the M.W. Bobo Funeral Home.
The automobile in which Collier was riding with Albert Johnson, 36, also of Arcadia, was struck by the Piedmont Limited passenger train. Collier being the more critically injured, Johnson suffered lacerations about the body and will recover. The automobile was demolished, the jurors were told by witnesses.
Only one eye-witness was heard at the inquest, this being S.H. Wyatt, who testified that he was walking up the side of the track at the time he saw the Piedmont Limited approaching the crossing. A freight train headed south, said the witness, was on a sideline, "but the freight train pulled close to the crossing and stopped."
"About the same time I saw the passenger train coming I also saw some boys across the track waving at those in the car," Mr. Wyatt testified. "The the train hit the car, and the boys started running. The train was not traveling fast because it stopped in two car-lengths after hitting the automobile. The bell was ringing but I couldn't hear it very plain."
Mr. Wyatt told Coroner John S. Turner and the jury that after the crash, he talked to Johnson, who he said was driving the car, and asked him who the man with him was, but that Johnson replied, "I haven't sense enough to remember." He then told of the ambulance carrying the injured men to the hospital.
F.G. Austell was foreman of the jury, the other members were: C.E. McDaniel, O.S. Porter, F.G. Gordon, M.C. McCallister and J.R. Burrell.
A certificate from Dr. Hugh S. Black certified that he had examined "Mr. Lawrence Collier and found him to have a mashed chest, multiple bruises over the body which were sufficient in our opinion to cause death," was read to the jury.
Funeral services for Mr. Collier will be held at the Fingerville Baptist Church at 3 o'clock Thursday afternoon, the Rev. A.P. Jones pastor of the Valley Falls Baptist Church officiating. Interment will follow in the church cemetery. The body will be taken from the Bobo Funeral Home Wednesday afternoon to the residence of G.B. Fowler, Valley Falls, the father-in-law of Collier, where it will remain until 2:15 Thursday when the funeral procession will leave for Fingerville.
Active pallbearers will be Roy Strickland, Nat Manis, Bill Chapman, Hollis Ayers, W.H. Ward, and Allan Nolen.
Honorary pallbearers will be G.D. Boyd, Henry Dickson, W.L. Bagwell, Charlie Chapman, Kid Chapman, Frank McClure, John Wilson and Lee Chapman.
A native of Tennessee, Collier had lived in Spartanburg County for about 15 years, moving to Arcadia a year ago from Valley Falls. He was a textile employee.
He is survived by his widow, who before her marriage was Miss Marian Fowler, and a daughter, Frances Collier. He also is survived by a sister, Mrs. Claude Malone of Chesnee, and a brother, Ray Collier of Woodruff.
