The injured lad with his father and brothr were hauling gravel and when Mr. Lindley started to drive from the pit, Perry fell from the load. The wheel ran over his head, mashing it down into the gravel and then passed over his body. One rib was torn loose and three ribs broken, according to a Danville specialist who was called to attend the injured boy. His condition is reported critical.
