Miss Donna L. Vroman, aged 15, daughter of George Vroman of Toddsville, was killed in a one-car crash near Massena about 10:30 p.m. on Sunday. Miss Vroman was a passenger in a 1954 vehicle operated by Orland Donnelly, aged 19, of Hammond. She died of multiple neck fractures. Mr. Donnelly suffered lacerations of the face and shock. According to reports, the car, travelling west on the Maple Ridge Road between Massena and Helena, failed to make a curve, went 20 yards through an open field, hit a 12-inch tree splitting it in half and came to rest about 10 feet from the tree trunk. Donnelly was thrown clear of the wreckage and Miss Vroman pinned beneath it.
