    • Kitchener Woman Killed on Highway

      Mrs. Clara Schmitt Was Hurrying Across Road; Two Others Injured - A Kitchener Woman was killed and two district residents injured in two Saturday night road accidents in the county. Mrs. Clara Schmitt, 71, of 188 Benton St., was almost instantly killed when struck by a car in front of the Grand River Tea Rooms on the Preston highway at 10 pm.

      She was hurrying across the road to catch the bus into Kitchener when she was struck by a car being driven toward Preston by Frederic White, 45, of 23 Brant Place, Galt.

      Worked at Tea Rooms

      Provincial Constable Lorne Rutherford investigated and reported that Mrs. Schmitt, who was a part-time worker at the restaurant, had left in company with a fellow worker, Mrs. Alma Knechtel of Bridgeport. Her companion told the unfortunate woman to wait on the side of the road and that she would cross and flag the bus. Mrs. Knechtel said that she was about over the road she heard a bump and turned to see Mrs. Schmitt just after the car had hit her.

      Started to Turn Back

      The injured woman suffered a compound fracture of one leg and a fracture skull. Dr. J.G. Ross was called and pronounced life extinct. No charges have been laid and no inquest will be held, police said today. White told police that the woman ran suddenly in front of his car, seemed to sense her danger and was turning to run back when struck. He was unable to swerve to the left to avoid her because of the bus. The late Mrs. Schmitt was born in Strasburg in 1877. She was married to David E. Schmitt in Heidelberg, in 1906.1a
