Tiffin, Ohio (AP) - Three Lorain sportsmen, en route to a pigeon shoot in Kentucky, were killed today when their car hit an express train at nearby Attica Junction.
Dead are:
HARVEY SPANG, 51, head of the Spang Baking Co., in Lorain;
DWIGHT TOBERT, 51, a barber;
and GEORGE D. TRIMMER, 52, a jeweler.
Their car hit the second diesel unit of a Baltimore and Ohio express and mail train, en route from Chicago to Washington. The car was demolished, but the train crew was unaware of the crash until it reached a tower near Willard.
Shotguns and shells were found in the wreckage of the auto. It was travelling south on Ohio 4 when the accident occurred at 6:37 a.m. The men were en route to a live pigeon shoot in Maysville, Ky.
