ANTHONY (TONY) W. CIANELLI, 26, of Rt.2, Deer Lodge Trailer Court, died at 5:55 a.m. today as a result of injuries received in an accident on Rt. 40 at 12:55 a.m., when his motorcycle struck a car broadside as the car pulled in front of the Cianelli cycle.

The accident occurred two miles west of Hagerstown near Huyett's Crossroads.

Injured was his wife Gwendolyn Elaine Cianelli, 24, also of Rt.2, Deer Lodge Court.

Mrs. Cinelli was seated behind her husband on the motorcycle when it struck a car driven by Thomas Yeargan, Jr., of Rt.2, as the Yeargan car pulled in front of the cycle to make a turn across the highway.

Police listed driver error on the part of Yeargan as a contributing factor in the accident. State Police said Yeargan failed to yield the right of way while making a left turn.

Cianelli died after being admitted to Washington County Hospital in critical condition.
