Struck by a car on Torbay Road near Major's Path, Thursday at 12:50 p.m., two teen-age girls were killed instantly. Two-year-old Muriel Anthony, sister of one of the victims, was taken to hospital and is suffering from head injuries.
Linda Anthony, 13 of Torbay Road, and Loretta Clarke, 11, of North Twillingate, who was spending a holiday with Linda, were the victims. The driver, 29-year-old James Joseph Fleming of Torbay is being held by the RCMP and faces a possible charge of criminal negligence.
An eye-witness told the Daily News that Linda and Loretta were visiting their friend, Karen Peach, who lives about 800 yards from the victim's home. As the time was drawing near for dinner, the two young girls left for home. Linda was carrying her younger sister at the time. They were walking on the shoulder of the road when the car struck them and sent them sprawling for some distance.
Condition of two-year-old Muriel Anthony, now at the General Hospital, is unchanged up to press time.
