Mother and Infant Son Fatally Injured On Ohio Highway

Sugarcreek, Ohio, — A speeding auto crashed into the ear [sic] of an Amish buggy carrying six members of a rural Baltic family Friday night, July 8, fatally injuring the mother and her four-month-old son.

Mrs. John A. N. Troyer, 31, was dead on arrival at Union Hospital in Dover. Little Lyle Troyer died several hours later in a Canton hospital.

The husband and father and two other sons, five and two years of age, were treated at the hospital for their injuries, and another son and a daughter did not require hospital treatment.

Investigating officers said the car which hit the buggy was traveling at a high rate of speed, and the buggy was demolished. The family was nearing their home after a trip to Sugarcreek.

Troyer, 31, and her four-month-old son Lyle of Baltic, Ohio, on July 8. Young Stein was driver of the car which crashed into the rear of the Amnish buggy in which Mrs. Troyer and her infant son were riding. Mitigating facts in the case were that the lights of an oncoming car had confused the driver and the buggy was seen too late. The youth was put under three-year probation and placed in custody of his parents.
