G. L. Perrigo
Fatally Hurt

ANBURN [sic] (AP) Glenn L. Perrigo, a young man from East Syracuse, was killed early today and another man was injured critically when the automobile in which they were riding slammed into an intersection sign and a utility pole.

Perrigo, about 20, was home on leave from marine corps duty.

Richard Kulesa, 19, of Syacuse, was reported in critical condition in Auburn Memorial hospital. Terry Schrock, 24, also of Syracuse, was considered in fair condition.

The Sheriff's department said the car skidded about 150 feet into an intersection sign on Route 5, west of here, and then went broadside across the road another 150 feet into a utility pole.

Perrigo lived at 210 Allen street.

The victim of the automobile accident today is believed to be the grandson of a former resident of Clayton, Glenn L. Perrigo, who conducted a painting business in the river resort more than 40 years ago. Glenn L. Perrigo, of Clayton, moved to Syracuse in 1924 and, on May 1 of that year, married Miss Mary Electa Cartwright, of Utica. The father of the young marine, killed near Auburn, is Glenn L. Perrigo, jr.

Auburn and struck a utility pole.

The driver of the car and a second passenger were injured and admitted to Auburn Memorial Hospital. Officials said the driver was charged with driving intoxicated.

Dead is Glenn L. Perrigo III, 19, of 210 Allen St., East Syracuse, the son of Glenn L. Perrigo Jr.

The injured were identified as Terry L. Schrock, 24, of 321 Westcott St., the driver, and Richard Kulesa, 18, of Carson Drive, East Syracuse. Kulesa is also on leave from the Marines.

Kulesa is reported in serious condition in the hospital with a possible concussion and a broken right leg. Schrock is listed in fair condition with a broken left ankle, hospital officials said.

Police said the accident occurred on Route 5 in the village of Sennett when the car, driven by Schrock, was attempting to pass another vehicle when it hit an icy spot, left the road, skidded more than 300 feet and crashed into a pole.
