Killed in car crash (1939)



NINE-MONTHS-OLD KENT, ILL. CHILD KILLED IN CRASH DONAL ALLAN HOCKMAN LOSES LIFE IN AUTOMOBILE ACCIDENT TUESDAY

FATHER'S AUTO IS STRUCK BY ONE DRIVEN BY LENA MAN

Donald Allan Hockman, nine-months-old son of Mr. and Mrs. Morrell Hockman of Kent, was fatally injured yesterday when the car in which he was riding with his parents was struck by a car driven by Boyd Mitchell, of Lena, in an accident which occurred at the Central school corner southwest of Lena. The child suffered a broken neck and died while on route to a Freeport hospital.

Mitchell was the same driver who recently backed his car out of a service station in Lena and struck an aged man, William Reardon, 70, knocking him to the pavement where he suffered painful bruises.

Three other persons riding in the Hockman car yesterday were injured, two seriously.
Neither Mitchell nor Charles Thratcher, also of Lena and riding in Mitchell's car, were injured.
According to Deputy Sheriff Walter Krell of Freeport, Donald Hockman was thrown from his position on the front seat of the Hockman car onto the road by the impact. The Mitchell car, Deputy Krell said, ran over the child.

The car was driven by Hockman, 34, who was accompanied by his wife, Lena, 33, and children, Donald Allan, nine-months old, Caroline 2, and Charles 3. (Should have been Carolyn and Harold).

Charles (Harold) received sever lacerations on the neck, cheek and chin, chest and left arm and a finger on his right hand was nearly severed. He was riding in the seat with his sister, Caroline (Carolyn) who escaped with bruises and shock. Mrs. Hockman suffered a fractured collar bone and bruises. The father received minor bruises.
The mother and the son, Charles (Harold), are still in a Freeport hospital.

An inquest over the child was to be conducted at the Fred Offenheiser funeral home in Pearl City this afternoon by Dr. E. A. Diestelmeier, of Freeport, Stephenson county coroner.
