Newspaper Article AUGUSTA MAN KILLED IN HIGHWAY ACCIDENT AUTO-TRUCK COLLISION CLAIMS LIFE OF CHESTER LEATHERBERRY NEAR MARIETTA Chester C. Leatherberry, 34, of Augusta, was fatally injured in an auto-truck collision near Marietta Tuesday at 9 a.m. His wife, Frances, 25, was reported in serious condition after her removal to Marietta Memorial hospital where she was treated for fractured jaw, head injuries and the loss of all her front teeth. Their adopted son, Ronald, 6, who was riding in the back seat, sustained only minor cuts and bruises. The accident occurred on U.S. Rt. 21 at Macksburg. State patrolmen and Washington-co sheriff's deputies, said Mr. Leatherberry was crushed to death by the impact. The body was pinned in the wreckage for nearly an hour and a half. According to authorities, the truck, operated by Ray Selzer, 44, of Lakemore, near Akron, was loaded with drums of chemicals and was following a gasoline truck. The latter vehicle slowed down as it approached a small bridge. Selzer told patrolmen he did not see the stop light on the gasoline truck and swerved to the left to avoid hitting the rear of the tank truck. His heavy vehicle collided head-on with the southbound Leatherberry auto. The Leatherberrys left Carrollton at 7 a.m. that morning to spend a vacation with her mother, Mrs. Orville Johnson at Norcross, N.C. Mrs. Leatherberry was removed to a Columbus hospital Tuesday evening for surgery. The child was brought home later the same evening. Another casualty in the collision was the family dog which was killed. Driver of the truck was charged with second degree manslaughter. He pleaded innocent and was released under bond of $500. Mr. Leatherberry was a veteran of World War II, having entered the service as an enlisted man and was sent to Keesler Field, Miss. to receive an airplane mechanic course. After completing this course he was sent to Manduria, Italy where he performed duties as a non-commissioned officer in charge of operations for 450th Bomb group. At the end of the war, Mr. Leatherberry returned to the States where he filled assignments as an operations supervisor at Travis Air Force Base, Calif., Wright-Patterson AFB, Dayton and Brookley AFB, Ala. In August 1949 he was commissioned a second lieutenant in the air force and was assigned to the operations section at Mobile, Ala. where he served until 1951. At the termination of his active duty he returned to civilian life with the rank of first lieutenant. Last year, Lt. Leatherberry, who continued as a member of the inactive reserve corps, enrolled in a refresher course at Clinton-Co A.F.B., Wilmington, O. Mr. Leatherberry was born at Augusta on March 20, 1921. He was graduated from Augusta high school in 1940 and following his war service was employed as an auxiliary worker at Alliance post-office. He was a member of Augusta Christian church and Augusta Masonic lodge. His wife is the former Miss Frances J. Crossnore of Newland, N.C. Surviving are his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Everett Leatherberry of Augusta and two sisters, Mrs. Freeda Camp of Hanoverton and Mrs. Bertha Stevens of Canton. A sister, Mrs. Vera M. Hogue was fatally injured in an automobile accident at Canton on Sept. 25, 1952. Services will be held Friday at 2 p.m. in Augusta Christian church with burial in Augusta cemetery. Friends may call at the home of his parents after 5 p.m. Thursday. The Maple funeral home of Kensington is in charge of arrangements.
