THIRD VICTIM IN YOUNGSTOWN CRASH IS DEAD

Three Others in Lakewood
Family Hurt When Auto 
Hits Interurban Car.

  A third member of the family of 
Andrew Beganik, 1638 Ridgwood ave., 
Lakewood, died at City hospital,
Youngstown, Monday morning, the vic-
tims of an automobile accident in
which two of the family were killed 
instantly and three others injured
Sunday evening.
  The dead are:
    Andrew Beganik, Sr., forty-nine
years old, killed instantly.
    Mary Beganik, six, killed in-
stantly.
    Andrew Beganik, Jr., skull frac-
tured, died at hospital.
     Drives Into Interurban Car
  The accident occurred when Beganik,
returning toward Cleveland after a day
in Youngstown, drove his machine into
a head-on collision with a New Castle
limited interurban car in Wilson ave.,
Youngstown.  A heavy rainstorm ob-
scured the driver's vision and made 
the crash unavoidable.
  Two other members of the family 
taken to the Youngstown City hospital,
were not expected to live Monday.
They are Mrs. Beganik, forty-five, and
a son, Joseph, thirteen years old.  Both
suffered fractured skulls.  Another son,
John, nineteen, was also seriously in-
jured, while a seventh passenger in
the car, Adam Hrymlak, twenty-three.
12903 Plover ave., Lakewood, was badly 
cut and bruised.
     Wanted to Buy Farm
  The family had motored to Youngs-
town early in the day to view a farm
property which Beganik had considered 
purchasing.  Three boys, however
Steven, seventeen; Paul, fifteen, and 
Charles, eleven -- had remained at
home.  Steven and Paul, on hearing 
of the accident, proceeded to Youngs-
town on a motorcycle.  Beganik, Sr.,
had been employed by the Parish & 
Bingham Company.
