Chet Ingram Killed Under Wheels of Logging Truck -
Marr Flat Mishap Fatal to Logger

Chester Ingram, 36, of Joseph was instantly killed about 8:30 a.m. Tuesday morning when a logging trailer ran over him during logging operations on Marr Flat. The truck which struck Ingram was driven by Wilbur Curry of Joseph. Curry reported that his truck had just been loaded at the jammer and Ingram was assisting him in tightening the chains and checking the load. While Curry was partly under the truck and Ingram was stepping behind the load, the truck started rolling slowly backward. One of the dual wheels of the trailer caught Ingram's foot and ran up his body. Curry dived into the truck to set the brakes but it was too late.
