Plymouth, Ind. (AP) - A car which state police said was speeding roared out of control on a U.S. 31 curve three miles south of Plymouth Monday night and crashed into an oncoming car, killing all five occupants of the vehicles.
State Police Trooper James Young said a car driven by CLYDE FISHER, 45, Rt. 1, Tippecanoe, hit a car driven by CLOYD R. TAYLOR, 36, Lakeville.
Both men and two children in TAYLOR'S car were killed instantly. MRS. LUCINDA BRADY, 24, mother of the children and who also was in TAYLOR'S car, died ten minutes after being brought to the Plymouth Hospital.
The children were WILLIAM, 6, and DONALD, 4.
