Fairland Man Is Crash Victim
----------
Brint Hill, 54, Is Killed as Truck Plunges Into Creek After
Train Crash.
----------
          Driving his truck onto crossing on the Young road about four miles northeast of here at 4:15 p.m. o’clock yesterday evening,  Brint Hill, 54-year-old Fairland resident was killed when his vehicle was struck by a Big Four passenger train.  Force of the impact sent the truck into Brandywine Creek where it was submerged in eight or ten feet of water.  It was removed about an hour later.  However, the body of Mr. Hill, apparently thrown from the vehicle, was secured some time later by grappling hooks.  Wounds on the body led Deputy Coronor Kohlmeyer to conclude had died as a  result of injuries received in the wreck rather than from drowning. A skull fracture was evident.
          Mr. Hill had been husking corn on the  Lloyd Harrell  on the Bert Young Road throughout the day and was on his way home in Fairland at the time the accident occurred.
          There no eye witnesses to the accident and authorities were unable to account for the fact that Hill had attempted to cross with the train so close, inasmuch as there is visibility in both directions.
          Members of the train crew were  Frank Enox, Indianapolis, conductor, E. Albaugh, Indianapolis, engineer, and a  Mr. Pullin, Indianapolis, brakeman.  Investigating officers were Sheriff Fred Courtney  and  Deputy Sheriff Fred Gravely Assistant Chief Earl Trees, and  Special Investigator Maurice Moberly, of the Shelbyville police, and  Elmer Cord  state patrolman.
          The victim is survived by the widow, Mrs. Audrey Hill, and five sons, Odie [Otie / Otis], 22;  Lloyd, 25;  Wayne, 17;  Kenneth, 14;  Jimmie, 12.
