Three girls fall from moving auto

Three young Norwalk women were injured early this morning when they slid off the hood of a moving car at the Norwalk Dragway, Ohio 18.

One of the girls, Barbara R. Farmer, 19, 82 N. Forster St., was admitted to the hospital and is listed in “satisfactory condition.”

The other two, Mary Farmer, 14, 82 N. Foster, and Elizabeth Snyder, 14, 28 Lake St., were treated and released.

A sheriff’s deputy checked into it this morning. He talked with one of the three girls who were riding on  the hood of a slow-moving, recently waxed car for about a distance of 40 feet. The driver stopped the car and the three girls slid off, he was told. Barbara Farmer bumped her head on the ground. The deputy said the girl refused to identify the driver of the car, although she indicated it was another girl.
