Rocky Ledbetter killed when car turns over
Rocky Ledbetter, 22, died at the home of his parents, Mr. and Mrs.
Ledbetter, of Allons, at 10 o’clock Saturday night, as a result
of injuries sustained when his car overturned on the highway between
Livingston and Allons. According to witnesses, a front spindle of
the car broke and sent the car rolling over several times. The youth
was rushed to the office of Dr. Capps and Dr. Qualls, but treatment
was futile. He was removed to the home of his parents. Besides his
parents, he is survived by five brothers: Troy, Overton, Quitman,
Joe, and Roy, and three sisters, Mrs. Overton Carr, Mrs. Billie
Carr, and Miss Hazel Ledbetter. Burial was in the Allons Cemetery.
