A Virginia girl, on her way to visit Philadelphia for the first time, was killed instantly early Thursday morning of last week when a heavy truck loaded with strawberries, toppled over on her near Media, Pa. The girl, Grace Elizabeth Bonniwell, 16, was riding in the front seat of the truck with John F Bennett, strawberry grower of Hacks Neck, Va., and a helper, Irving Jones. Driving from Chester to Media, Bennett got on the wrong road, and the engine stalled as the truck was climbing a rough, steep hill. The heavy vehicle started to slip back, and Jones, who was on the outside, jumped out. The girl followed him, but as she did so a wheel of the truck caught in the curb and it overturned on her.
