The most serious accident in the history of the Suffolk District occurred on July 27th on Route 460 near Waverly. The driver of a large van lost control of his truck when an insect got into the cab. The truck went entirely across the 44 foot roadway and hit our State truck parked on the shoulder of the road, killing Charles S. Curtis, Carpenter Foreman, and George Kohout, Laborer. To other laborers, William Chamberlain and Robert Ellis were injured. We extend our deepest sympathy to the families of Mr. Curtis and Mr.Kohout and wish Mr. Ellis and Mr. Chamberlain a speedy recovery.
