From the Commercial Appeal, William Bodry, age 21, of Haynes, a truck driver and logger, literally was burned to death yesterday afternoon when an Army five ton truck, which he was piloting, plunged off the Crittenden County viaduct, a distance of 30 feet while his uncle, W.W.Pounders, 25, of Memphis, escaped by jumping as the vehicle toppled. Many attempted to rescue him but to no avail. The truck came from Reuben Mallory's logging camp, three miles from Miles Thompson's store, this side of Marion, Ark., to have a tire welded. He is survived by his father, J.J.Bodry of Haynes, three brothers, Walter, Eugene, and Hiram Bodry, and two sisters, Mary and Myrtle Bodry. The army truck had been converted to a logging conveyance.
