He was pushed over and a larger boy stepped on him injuring his head. He went home and seemed to be feeling better but toward evening he became worse and about 10:30 became unconscious. Dr. Roe Reed, his mother Mrs. Hazel Reed and uncle Coach W. B. Rood started shortly with him for the hospital in St. Joseph, but Doyle passed away while enroute there.
