Woman Killed Near Amityville, L. I.—Man Mangled by Train.
AMITYVILLE, L. I., Dec. 16.—Mrs. Nicholas Evento Jr. of Amityville was instantly killed and Mrs. Lewis Deneville of Bellmore was perhaps fatally injured tonight when an automobile in which they were riding and which was driven by Mrs. Deneville's husband, collided on the Montauk Highway, near here, with another machine operated by Charles Beck of Brooklyn.
The Deneville car, in which also were Evento and his young son, turned completely over, throwing Mrs. Deneville to the ground and crushing Mrs. Evento to death beneath it. Mrs. Deneville was treated by Dr. Luce and will be removed to her home as soon as her condition, which is at present critical, permits. The others escaped uninjured.
The occupants of bath cars were locked up by Captain Bert Moore of the Amityville police, pending an autopsy on Mrs. Evento's body tomorrow by Coroner E. S. Moore of Suffolk County.
DOVER, N. J., Dec. 16.—S. Siegel, a merchandise buyer of 352 South Third Street, Brooklyn, was killed, and Fred Englebert was removed to the General Hospital here in a serious condition today, followingt he demolishing of a large motor truck driven by Englebert, upon the seat of which Siegel also was riding, at a grade crossing of the Lackawanna Railroad in Kenville, near here.
An express arrived at the grade crossing as the truck was passing. The train carried the truck for some distance. Englebert was thrown to the side of the track, but Siegel was mangled beneath the locomotive wheels. Englebert's injuries include concussion of the brain and body lacerations.
