The dead girl suffered a skull fracture and cuts and bruises. She was taken to the hospital at Marshfield after the accident which occurred at 4:10 P.M. Sunday. Her aunt is still in the hospital suffering lacerations to her hands, a shoulder injury and an injury to her back.
The car, a 1941 Plymouth, is an almost total wreck. It was brought to Spencer by the Jensen motors wrecker.
