Springville Man Dies From Injuries

Last updated on Wednesday, September 14, 2011

(BEDFORD) - A Springville man died Tuesday at University Hospital.

21-year-old Roy W. White suffered internal injuries after he flipped his blazer on Ind. 37, just north of Fifth Street, Friday afternoon.

Bedford Police Maj. Danny Irwin said White was traveling north on Ind. 37 when he veered off the road, over-corrected, causing him to cross the meridian and go into the south-bound lane. The 1996 Chevrolet Blazer side-swiped a truck, crashed into the rock wall. White was thrown from the vehicle, which overturned and landed on him.

Bedford Fire Department firefighters used the Hurst tool and airbags to lift the Blazer off White. Firefighters believe White was not wearing a seat belt.
