Aroostook Man, 22 Killed By Truck

St. David, May 29, (AP)--Leonard Joseph Cyr, 22, of this Aroostook County town, was fatally injured tonight when struck by a truck on the Madawaska Road, according to state police.

Cyr was taken to the Hotel Dieu Hospital in Edmundston, N. B., where he died shortly after arrival.

State Trooper Otis N. Labree said Cyr stopped his own car and stepped out of it to talk with Emilie Beaulieu, who was in a parked car. Cyr was standing with one foot on the running board of Beaulieu's car when the truck struck him, the state trooper said.

Labree said the truck was operated by Thomas Morin, 17, also of St. David.
