INTERURBAN CARS COLLIDE; 40 HURT.

FIRE FOLLOWS WRECK AND BOTH CARS ARE BURNED.

Freemont, Ohio, April 29. -- (AP) -- Between 30 and 40 persons were injured, one probably fatally, when two interurban cars on the Lake Shore Electric railroad collided near here late today.

Fire broke out in the wreckage immediately after the crash and both cars were burned.

MRS. FLORA BONER of Fremont, is expected to die from her injuries.

Those seriously hurt are:
JESS VICKERY, of Clyde, Ohio, an attorney.
F. J. BALDWIN, of Toledo, Ohio.
MRS. O. E. JOHNSON and her son, GEORGE, of Freemont.
IRVING FANGBONER, of Fremont.

According to Lake Shore officials, the car, bound for Fremont, was to have gone into a siding near the scene of the wreck, but for some reason which has not been ascertained, failed to do so.

Many of the injured were brought here in automobiles while others were taken to Clyde.
