      KILLED INSTANTLY
      MAN STRUCK BY LORRY
      SKID IN SNOW ON ROAD
      VICTIM'S BROTHER DRIVING
      [by telegraph '97Own correspondent] TAUMARUNUI, Friday.
      Struck by a motor-lorry which skidded in the snow near the National Park station this afternoon a middle-aged man who was standing in front of a stationary vehicle on the road was killed instantly. The victim was
      Mr. Harold Le Prou, aged 3S, married, a contractor, of National Park.
      The accident occurred on the Tokaanu road between the station and the Egmont box factory mill. Mr. Le Prou was driving from the mill to the station about three o'clock when he was involved in a collision with a motor car driven by Mr. Brian Wilson, of the Native Lands Department, Hokianga, who was on his way to the mill.
      An occupant of the car, Mr. R. R. G. Searle, of Kohukohu, Hokianga, received head injuries and was removed to the Chateau Tongariro, where he was attended by Dr. W. Fisher, of Taumaruuui. His condition is not serious.
      Mr. Le Prou, who was not injured in the collision, stepped out of his lorry and was standing in front of the radiator when another truck, driven bv his brother, Mr. Basil Le Prou, rounded a bend in the road.
      Seeing the two vehicles on the road Mr. Basil Le Prou applied his brakes, with the result that his lorry skidded. The back portion struck his brother, Mr. Harold Le Prou, who was pinned against the front of his own lorry.
