ARMY AIRMAN DIES IN 15-FOOT PLUNGE; Lieut. Joseph D. Park Crushed to Death When Biplane Hits Tree in California.

Page 11, 998 words

LOS ANGELES, May 9. -- Lieut. Joseph D. Park, U.S.A., was killed to-day when a military biplane, which he was driving plunged its nose into a gulley, turned a somersault and crashed against a tree, at Olive, thirty-nine miles southeast of here. The aviator fell only fifteen feet, but the radiator crushed his head, and then fell upon his body. [ END OF FIRST PARAGRAPH ]
