The occupants escaped serious injury when this cargo truck from F. E. Merrill Lumber of Turner, enroute to Forster's toothpick mill with wooden shipping boxes, crashed through the deck of the wire suspension bridge over the Sandy River. The truck, owned by Frank E. Merrill and occupied by Leroy J. Merrill and Harold Andrews, all of Turner, luckily came to rest upright on the riverbank.
