L. J. Miller of Highland City, 58 year old carpenter, died in Morrell Hospital at 8:30 last night about 2 hours after he was struck by a car as he walked across Main Street in front of Fletcher's Drugstore, 2 blocks east of Lake Mirror.
 Officers Wayma Robson and Tom Daniel said the accident apparently was unavoidable and no charge was loged against James Huggins, of New Auburndale Road, whose old model car struck  Miller. Police said Huggins apparently was driving slowly, as the car traveled only its own length after the accident.
  Miller, who at first was thought to be only slightly injured, was taken to Morrell Hospital in an ambulance. He was conscious at the time, though he had a deep scalp wound. He told officers he was on his way from Camp Blanding and had started across the street from a filling station to buy some medicine at the drugstore when he was hit by the car.
 Survivors include his widow, Irma Ruth Miller, who lives in Highland City a son: Hasken Miller, daughter, Louise Miller and a brother O. V. Miller of Waycross Ga., sisters: Mrs. Maggie Welch, of Highland City and Mrs. Lorene Botc?? of Baxley, Ga. at the time of this article arrangements had not been made.
