Clarence Tomczak, 14, son of Mr. and Mrs. John Tomczak, who lived seven miles northwest of here (Thorp, Clark Co., Wis.) died Saturday at 5:30 p.m. as a result of injuries received when he was struck by a pick-up truck in front of his farm home.
The accident occurred about 7:30 a.m. when Clarence was riding his motor bike. Peter Depa, 19, Thorp, driver of the truck was going north on a township road and did not see the boy as he came out of his driveway because of overhanging bushes on the roadside.

His injuries included a skull fracture, a fracture of the left arm, and internal injuries. Authorities have stated that no inquest would be held.
