LANDRUM MAN DIES
   INMAN  -  James Franklin Plumbley, 20, of Rt. 2, Landrum, was killed about 7:45 p.m. Wednesday when the 1956 Ford in which he was riding went out of control and left the road on Secondary Route 40 (Old County Home Road) about one mile west of Inman.
   J.R. Rogers, Spartanburg County Rural Policeman who aided in the investigation, said the car carrying Plumbley and Everett Pierce of upper Spartanburg County went off the left side of the road as it entered a rather sharp curve, traveled about 300 feet, clipped down an eight inch cedar tree and then smashed into the front of a frame house.
   Officer Rogers said it has not been determined whether Plumbley or Pierce was driving the car at the time of the accident.
   Pierce is in a Spartanburg hospital with serious injuries, the officer reported. He said that Plumbley was still breathing when he arrived on the scene but died moments later.
