Roy E. Kennell, 56, of Hyndman R. 1, sawmill worker and father of 11 children, died last Thursday morning at Memorial hospital, in Cumberland, as the result of a highway accident on a rural road near Wellersburg. Mr. Kennell, who was injured early Wednesday morning, is believed to have been run over by car or a truck. Police were not called to investigate the accident until the next day. When police arrived at the Kennell home in the foothills of the Allegheny mountains near the Bedford-Somerset-Maryland line, they found the injured man in a critical condition. Dr. John Topper, of Hyndman, was called and ordered the man's removal to the hospital. Mr. Kennell died a short time after he was admitted. Death was caused by internal hemorrhage and shock. Officers said Mr. Kennell apparently was run over on the lonely rural road about 12:30 o'clock Wednesday morning. He was found by members of his family about two hours later. Jesse Kennell, Hyndman, R. D. 1, a nephew, said he and his uncle had been out during the evening. He said he let his uncle out of a truck near his home and drove off.
