    • ENTERPRISE MAN FATALLY INJURED IN TRUCK CRASH - Everton Smith Killed When Heavy Truck Struck Train Near Barrie
      BARRIE, FEB. 9 - (CP) - Everton Smith, aged 45, Enterprise, northwest of Kingston, was fatally injured, and Herbert Armstrong, aged 20, Stayner, was less seriously injured and will recover as the result of a collision between a heavily loaded transport truck, driven by Armstrong, crashing into a southbound Canadian Pacific Railway freight train at Midhurst crossing on King's Highway 26 west of here last night.
      Smith died from a fractured skull and other serious injuries shortly after admission to a Toronto hospital today.
      The dead man, formerly a member of the Ontario Provincial Police stationed at Hamilton and Toronto, lost his wife in a street car accident a few years ago. He has no surviving children.
      Armstrong lies in a hospital here suffering from bruises and cuts to his face and knee, but has no fractures. He was saved by the steering wheel of the truck.
      Driven by Armstrong, the westbound truck, owned by Maquires Transport, Stayner, crashed into the seventh car of the 30 car freight train. The mercury was at 25 below zero, and the truck windshield is said to have been frosted.
      The dead man, on his way from Camden East, near Kingston, to visit his brother, Howard Smith, in Collingwood, was picked up on the way from Toronto.
      Dr. W. C. Little, Barrie, rendered medical attention.

      ENTERPRISE - The tragic death of Everton Smith, a late resident of this village, gave this community a decided shock when the news reached here on Friday that he had met with his death when a large transport truck in which he was a passenger had crashed into the side of a moving C.P.R. freight train near Barrie, receiving a fractured skull from which he died later in hospital in Toronto. Within a few days of two years his wife, who was Miss Norah Jackson, a daughter of the late Mr. and Mrs. William H. Jackson of Enterprise, was killed by a streetcar in Toronto while crossing the street.
      For several years the deceased was in charge of a blacksmith shop in this village and on his appointment to the Provincial Police force, he with his family moved to Hamilton and lived there for several years, where their only child (Bessie) who had married Leland Keller, died leaving a child(Betty), who was adopted by the grandparents. Later Mr. Smith was moved to Toronto and served on the force there for several years. Following the death of Mr. Smith, he, with his little granddaughter Betty, came back to Enterprise and took up residence in his home on Main Street. Last fall he disposed of his property and went to Belleville.
      The body of the unfortunate man was brought to Enterprise on Saturday afternoon and taken to the home of his brother-in-law, Bert Jackson, from where it was taken on Monday morning and placed in the United Church vault to be interred beside his wife and daughter in the spring beside his wife and daughter in Moscow United Church Cemetery.
      While taking the body from the undertaker's parlors in Toronto to the station to be sent to Enterprise, the ambulance which was carrying the remains was struck by a street car and was badly damaged, the shell enclosing the casket being destroyed, making it necessary to procure a new one. This caused a delay in its arrival in Napanee. The local train from Napanee to Enterprise, however, waited for its arrival there, running an hour late on its usual schedule.

A private service was held at the home of Mr. Jackson on Monday morning and among those from this district who attended were his brothers, A. E. Smith of Napanee and D. E. Smith of Odessa, his nephew Reg. Smith of Napanee, and his nephew J. B. Smith of Odessa. A brother, Arthur Smith of Port Colborne, and a niece, Mrs. Paris, also of Port Colborne, attended the service.
      The remains were accompanied from Toronto by L. Kellar, a son-in-law. The service was conducted by Rev. D. M. Stinson of the Enterprise United Church and the remains were placed in the vault to await interment in the spring.
