BROWNING, Blair William Leroy

A 16-year-old youth was instantly killed about 10:30 last night in a truck-bicycle accident on Route 96 at Londonderry Township, one and a half miles south of Hyndman, Pa. Trooper Elmer I. Landis, of the Pennsylvania State Police at Bedford, identified the victim as Blair William Leroy Browning, son of Harry Samuel and Janet (Hutzell) Browning, RFD 1, Hyndman. Authorities said the youth was coasting down a hill on his bicycle when it crashed against the bed of a truck driven by William Kennell, Hyndman, traveling north on the highway. Browning was headed in the opposite direction. Kennell told police he had just passed an automobile before the youth's bicycle hit his truck. Riding with him were a brother, Leroy Edward Kennell, and Lloyd Fred Moore, Hyndman. Trooper Landis said the victim's head hit the rear of the motor vehicle. The top of his head was torn off and his skull crushed. Vernon G. Geisel, coroner of Bedford County, assisted in the investigation. At the time of the accident, young Browning was reportedly returning home after visiting friends. Born in Cumberland on February 22, 1931, he was a student at Hyndman High School. His death brought to five the number of fatal accidents in the family during the past three years. No charges were filed against Kennell pending completion of the investigation. Besides his parents he leaves two brothers Kenneth and Larry Browning, at home, and three sisters, Mrs. Joan Grable, Detroit, and Marie and Gloria Browning, at home. Last rites will be conducted Sunday at 2 p. m. from the Zeigler Funeral Home, Hyndman, by Rev. John Buffenmyers. Interment will be in Hyndman Cemetery.
