Four members of Lakewood Family and Friend in Seri- ous Condition in Youngstown. TRIED TO AVOID LIMITED Driver Turns Suddenly and Machine Slips on Wet Pavement. A Lakewood man and his six-year- old daughter were killed, four other members of the family and another man were seriously injured yester- day afternoon when the automobile in which they were riding collided at Youngstown with a new Castle lim- ited interurban.

All of the injured of the Begany family were taken unconscious to City hospital in Youngstown. Mr. Hrymlak, though not so seriously in- jured, suffered bruises to the arms and legs. The Begany family with Mr. Hrym- lak left Cleveland about 6:30 yester- day morning to visit relatives near Youngstown. At the time of the ac- cident they were driving west on Wilson avenue and, in order to dodge the oncoming interurban limited, made a sharp turn off on to Hine street. The machine skidded on the wet pavement and the rear of the auto- mobile collided with the trolley car. All of the occupants were thrown from the automobile and the machine itself was wrecked. Three younger members of the family, Steve, aged 17, Paul, 15, and Charles, 11, remained at the Cleve- land home. Begany was employed at the Par- ish & Bingham Co. plant. Hrymlak is a machinist at the Lakewood En- gineering Co.
