The officials said Moyer was driving south on the road and swung across the tracks in front of the westbound train in the fog. The road runs parallel to the railroad tracks near the crossing then swings abruptly over them. According to state police, Moyer made a left hand turn directly into the path of the train and his car was hit on the side.
Memorial services were held at 2 p.m. March 5 in the Sheets Funeral Home with the Rev. E. L. Worley officiating and burial was in Lowell cemetery.
Moyer served with the U.S. Army from Sept. 1918 until Feb. 1919.
Survivors include his sisters, Mrs. Opal Mears of Hammond, and Mrs. Ida Hasler of Elkhart; three brothers, Arthur of Elkhart; Jim of Oak Forest, Ill.; and Bert of Lowell; also many other relatives and friends.
