An automobile collision at the corner Hibbard road and Lake avenue in Wilmette Monday afternoon resulted in the death of one child and injurits [sic] to six persons. Norman Campanale, seven year old son of Tony Campanale, of 437 Provident avenue, Winnetka, was the victim of the accident. Those injured were: Tony Campanale, 33; his wife, Florence, 26; their son, Oranzo, one year old; Mrs. Campanale's sister, Mary Edna McGee, and Mr. and Mrs. James T. Hanley, of 827 Chestnut avenue.

The Campanale car, a light roadster, was going south on Hibbard road, while the Hanley car, a sport coupe, was proceeding west on Lake avenue. The cars crashed at the intersection of the two streets.

Members of the Campanale family were rushed to the Evanston hospital by passing motorists, where Norman died several hours later. Mr. and Mrs. Hanley in the other car were also injured, and were taken to their home where they were attended by a physician. Mrs. Hanley received a broken rib and several minor injuries. Mr. Hanley, who is vice-president of the American Wire and Fence company of Chicago, was badly shaken up.

Both cars were wrecked in the crash. The Hanley machine was thrown along the side of Hibbard road south of Lake avenue. The Campanale roadster turned over in a pile of dirt along the road, pinning its occupants underneath.
