A Bear Run man died early Thursday morning shortly after his truck crashed against a hillside on Euclid-Nicut Road. Funeral arrangements are incomplete at the Stump Funeral Home for 70-year-old Harold McCumbers, whose address is Orma. A family friend said it looked like McCumbers might have had a heart attack.

His wife, Virginia, a passenger in the truck, crawled from the vehicle with few injuries.

Truck was in precarious situation

McCumbers was "partially entrapped" in a situation which involved the truck coming to rest in a precarious position. Emergency service workers continued CPR on the man for about one hour. "It was touch and go from the beginning," said an emergency worker.
