A coroner's jury composed of J.'H. Fraser, K. D. James, and Frank Kohlhaas decided Tuesday that the death of Joseph Elbert,; 63-year-old farmer struck by a gasoline transport Saturday afternoon, was the "result of an accident and was caused by no felonious intent on the part of anyone." James V. Huff, of Mason City, driver of the truck, told the jury that he observed the car and trailer for some "distance while he was coming down the highway. He turned to the left to pass it, but as he did so, the truck swerved to .the right. He ibelieves the right tire went flat, causing the truck to crash into the trailer and car. •Elbert, who was driving to Algona with a trailer load of oats, pulled over on the pavement shoulder just east of the hemp plant to fix a flat tire on the trailer. The truck hit the trailer, severing El-bert's right leg below the \ > ' • knee arid''knocking him into the field,, then went on into the ditch arid' through the fence, pushing the car, in front. The accident occurred" at 2:40 p, m. -•'•Mrs. Elbert was unhurt and stopped an east-going car to ask for assistance. . - Elbert was later taken to the Kossuth county hospital where his leg was amputated above the knee Sunday morning.
