Cleveland, OH Auto Wrecks, May 1929

Cleveland---(AP)---Sixteen persons were killed and 31 were injured, 12 seriously, in Ohio, traffic accidents ove[sic] the weekend. Five were dead and four of 17 injured were in critical conditions today as officials opened an investigation into the collision of a Cleveland-Detroit bus near Toledo early Sunday morning.

E. D. Waring, 36, driver of the bus, and Godfried C. Frovap, the truck driver, spent last night in jail at Monroe, Mich., while authorities there began their inquiry. Frovap said he stopped to repair his engine and that he was in the cab, trying to get the truck under way when the bus sideswiped it. Waring told officials he was blinded by the lights of another machine and did not see the truck in time to avoid collision.

Most of the passengers were asleep. The dead were Frank Cinderich, 21, of Trenton, Mich.; H. Westerman, 40, Chicago; Mrs. Emma Maurettus, 66, of Los Angeles; an unidentified man about 42, thought to be from Detroit. The four most seriously injured were in the Monroe hospital today.
