3 OHIO WOMEN KILLED, 4 HURT IN 4-CAR CRASH.
Celina, Ohio (AP) - Three young women driving north on U.S. 127 were killed Friday. Another car failed to stop at a stop sign at the junction of Ohio 117, 11 miles north of here, and began a four-car crash which also injured four persons.
Killed were CAROLINE BAKER, 25, of West Manchester; JANE ANN BUTTS, 19, and her sister MARILYN JEAN BUTTS, 17, both of Greenville.
Highway patrolmen said a car driven by BOONE SMITH, 28, of Rt. 2, Greenville, ran through the stop sign and hit the car driven by MISS BAKER, knocking it into the southbound lane where it was struck by another car. A fourth auto then piled into the wreckage.
SMITH, who was not injured, pleaded guilty to running a stop sign in Municipal Court here. His trial was set for Monday.
