Jackson, Mich., Sept. 5.---Harry Endicott of Anderson, Ind., a brother of "Farmer Bill" Endicott, the noted automobile racer, and Mary Sarata, of Jackson, a 10-year-old spectator, were killed and three persons injured here this afternoon, when Endicott's automobile, hurtling around the race track, crashed through a fence after one of the front tires blew up.

The injured are George Benedict, of Los Angeles, who was acting as Endicott's mechanician, Mrs. Mabel Waiters and Frances Hall, 13 years old, both of Jackson. Benedict's condition is in doubt. Neither Mrs. Walters nor the Hall girl was seriously hurt.

Endicott was driving a 100-horsepower Cutting car, preparatory to an exhibition race against Benedict here tomorrow, when the accident occurred. Benedict was at his aid.
